Example: Overshot Gamp Towel
This gamp is woven by Diane Pigg from a design shared by Robyn Spady in Handwoven May/June 2014. Diane uses 10/2 cotton (warp, pattern & tabby), 24 epi. Woven tromp as writ in the first half (Rose fashion), then tie up was changed for Star fashion. In the magazine, Robyn wove 2 separate towels, but Diane chose to have all the designs in one towel.
Example: Color Gamp in 4 Styles
This color gamp is woven by Emily Guilland-Larson with 12 colors of Lunatic Fringe 10/2 cotton yarns. The first gamp was woven in plain weave at 24 epi. I made the colors changes 2x3” because I thought it gave a better color reference. I then cut it off and reslayed at 28 epi and wove 3 more gamps. The 1st was in 3/1 twill, then 2/2 twill and finally a crepe weave. The crepe weave draft was taken from Mastering Weave Structures, by Sharon Alderman.
Example: Color & Weave Gamp Towel
This gamp was woven by Diane Pigg using a design from Jane Stafford’s on-line guild using 8/2 cotton at 18 epi.
Example: Twill Gamp Scarf
