Insomniac tonight, so I’ve been playing with doubleweave drafts. Bonnie was kind enough to explain to me how to create intuitively clear doubleweave drafts using a divided parallel threading – this is possibly the coolest thing since sliced bread! I’m learning about block weaves as well – I hadn’t realized it was possible to control the pattern in each block separately.
The gist of it is that top right and bottom left quadrants control the pattern in each set of warps/wefts, and the the top left and bottom right quadrants control which set of warps/wefts is showing. In addition to the photo below (which shows interlacement view in Fiberworks PCW, but should be enough to make out the patterns if you view the larger version). You can view the .wif file here. (For some reason Firefox is displaying it as text – do a “save as” with the .wif file extension and you should be able to open it using your weaving software.)
And now I’m finally tired again, so off to bed with me! Tomorrow is a whole ‘nother day.
