In the warp zone again. This time I'm making a black linen (warp) and black wool (weft) scarf. I'm using a standard "Ms and Ws" point draft twill pattern from Handweaver's Pattern Directory pg 90. #weaving
Technical #weaving talk
When weaving point draft twill patterns, the pattern reverses on itself. If you read the introduction to that section in Handweaver's Pattern Directory it will inform you that because of the reversal, these patterns require a floating selvedge.
If you don't read this section or already know this fact, a few inches into weaving you will discover the problem, unpick all your work, and improvise a weighted floating selvedge. Ask me how I know.
You can see the pattern emerge on this fabric very quickly. Here is the first few inches of the scarf. Instead of just repeating the pattern throughout the full width, I extended the pattern on each edge to give it a one inch border on each side to frame the central pattern. #weaving
