Strike while the iron’s hot. Two posts in one day! Turns out I could get the desired effect by using the Reverse Warping Method. (If I do say so myself, that is an excellent tutorial.) Note that the pattern is not centered on the square. On the left border you see complete “stars;” on the right you see 2/3 stars.Read More →
One of the reasons I began the reversible pattern exploration was because I wanted patterns that could be used on a rigid heddle loom as well as a pin loom. It’s a bit easier to weave samples on the pin loom. I think this particular design looks good if you turn the square clockwise one turn, but as usual, you can’t duplicate that look without doing some fancy weave-work (like two-layer weaving or maybe reverse warping). We’ll see if that ever materializes…
I’ve been locked out of my blog for a long time, so I’m finally able to post again. Whew.
About a year ago I fiddled around with some patterns that look roughly the same on both sides of the square. I call them … reversible! Some looked better than others and I’m in the process of diagramming them on the computer (still prefer to design on paper). Here’s the first one.
