To review: the pattern is by Laurie Autio from a Complex Weavers compilation disc. Its 10 shafts and 10 treadle pattern in 2/8 cotton, sett 20 epi. Less than I wanted but it seems to have worked nicely. The pattern tightened up but no excessive shrinkage. The floats mean its absorbent and it helps to keep the warp colours intact for small runs. Equally attractive front and back! The different coloured wefts change the whole look of the cloth.
Violet weft 'front'
and (thanks to Blogger loading pictures weird again) the 'back.'
The plum 2/8 weft 'front'
Then lastly, the royal blue front and back. I think its the more dramatic of the colours.
Would I use this pattern again? Yes! I would use a 22 epi sett next time and try a different gradation of colours in the warp.
Lilibet is naked right now but won't be for long! I'm doing a small double weave sampler and will be planning the project and pulling the warp (hopefully) tomorrow.
