Lee Surrender Pillowtop Instructions


Weave 4 spectacular pillow covers! The finished size of the pillow covers is about 18” x 17”.  Lee’s Surrender is an overshot pattern that uses 4 harnesses.  The pattern listed below comes from Marguerite Porter Davison’s book A Handweaver’s Pattern Book on page 184.

Weaving overshot is fun…you will weave with two shuttles.  One shuttle carries the pattern yarn, and the other shuttle carries the tabby or tie down yarn.
