Now for some texture

I’ve got plain weaving now so time to start playing with texture.  Using the Ashford knitters loom or other fixed heddle looms you need a ‘pick up stick’.  I just used a spare shuttle which works really well.

For each of the patterns below I put the heddle in the down position and picked up every second warp thread at the back of the loom.  For plain weaving the stick is left at the back, for the pattern row it is brought forward to the heddle.

1. Weave 3 rows plain, bring stick forward and weave one row.

2. weave 2 rows plain, 2 rows with stick forward.

3. weave 2 rows plain, 1 row with stick forward.
