SLAAAAY TORONTO IM SO PROUD OF THIS
This twill is the weaving pattern for my red ruana. I designed it to provide for long floats for the rayon and mohair yarn (Fiesta Yarns La Boheme in the Poppies colorway).
The horizontal numbered pattern strip at the bottom is the warp threading (read right to left). The right pattern strip is the treadling sequence (read bottom to top). The square in the lower right corner is the tie up (how the eight shafts are connected to the foot treadles in groups).
The sett (ends per inch or epi for those of you who are not weavers) will be 15 epi. The rayon and mohair yarn stripe will be threaded through shaft 8 (in the warp), so the stripes will appear about once per inch and the stripes’ floats a third to a little less than half an inch long.
Just finished warping my new loom that I made out of a $3 18”x25” cork board from the thrift store and a dollar’s worth of nails. #weavingloom #loom #diy #handmade #upcycling #weaving
