If you want to weave a
herringbone seat
(or back)
that looks like this:

Herringbone Weave

I wrote this pattern early on as this is a very popular, traditional straight forward weave. This may be done on
the seat or the back of a chair or rocker. It is a very
strong pattern and woven on many seats. Learning this
weave is the basis for many other weaves.
The Finger lake Fan Weave, The Diamond Weave,
and Splint weave.

The width of the material is optional, the wider it gets it is
referred to as splint. 'A splint seat woven in the
Herringbone pattern.

The booklet discusses the different material you can use.
A smaller width weaver produces a fine detailed more
formal weave, as a wider splint will give more of a
country look. The different ways of joining or adding
on are also explained.

A seat maybe woven in the Herringbone Pattern or the
very similar Fingerlake Fan Weave pattern. and
then the back woven in New England Porch Weave
, or the Diamond Weave. or be creative and do a chevron. another alternative for a back is the Carolina Close Weave.

There have been recently several 'knockoffs'
to this pattern book.
They say imitation is flattery, but the directions
are distressing to me.
It is important to weave a solid, tight seat, your time and craftsmanship is important.

Caning (seat weaving) is fun,
and as I discuss the frame of mind is important.
Sit back, take the pressure away, and enjoy the process.
