Back in August I developed a new technique I call “Reverse Warping Method,” or RWM. It entails starting the warping process with L4, at Cr4, instead of Cr1; L1 becomes the weaving layer.

My first attempt with RWM was a plain weave square. The only discernible difference was that I ended up with a longer tail at Cr1 than usual; Cr4’s tail was shorter.

This picture shows a comparison between Premier Sweet Roll yarn (the large cake type of yarn) and Caron Simply Soft. The Sweet Roll yarn is a bit thicker than CSS.

Personally I think the pattern shows up a little better on CSS, but you may have a different opinion (the lighting is not great in the photos). Also, I tend to warp a bit loose, so my patterns may show up differently than yours.

The Sweet Roll yarn was not especially difficult to weave despite its being thicker than CSS. I think the CSS square has better drape. A project made using PSR will likely be a little heavier and stiffer.
