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

Caroline Close Weave

I kept noticing this chair pattern when I visited
down thru the Carolinas.
As I developed and wrote these original instructions
I wondered if it had a similar story to the
Fingerlakes Fan Weave. I was never able to determine
if they were manufactured in this pattern for this part of
the country, or if it was just a very prolific weaver.
It is similar to The New England Porch Weave.

This different pattern certainly would fit in nicely
on the chairs and rockers
for the resorts in Virginia, North and South Carolina.
Don't forget Georgia!
It weaves up faster than the Porch Weave pattern
and is just as sturdy.

Chair seat weaving appears difficult,
but with these instructions your project will go easy.
The name is a tribute to the area, where many
survivors may still be found.
The tradition material was Wide Binder cane,
but there are several very acceptable alternatives.

There have recently been 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.
