Diane Carpentier's Little Swivel Clutches

Swivel is a treadling method that produces exquisite designs made up of delicate dots of color-a lot like needleworked petit point. Floats appear on the wrong side of the fabric, but the structure on the right side is plain weave. Many threadings can be used for swivel, but overshot, with its built-in pattern blocks, is an ideal choice. Varying weft colors and treadling orders allows a wide range of designs and is a great way to use up small bits of yarn.
