    I love swedish weaving and have done about 25 throws and given all away but one black one that i kept. I have ordered a Christma swedish weave book and I was so happy to find it. I tried looking and they were not in publication anymore. These were brought back.

    Is Swedish weaving the same as Swedish hucking? I have some towels made by my grandmother and they look somewhat like the picture.

    The fabric is Huck Toweling. I have done a lot of Swedish
    weaving in the past and have a WIP that has been hanging around for about 20 years.

    Is it done with cotton yarn? It looks
    difficult to do. Do you use a loom?

    yes you use yard and no it is not hard. Just learning to read the pattern. No a loom is not necessary. Just 3 packs of yard some monk's cloth and a needles is all that is necessary. This particular book can be found for sale on Ebay.
