Thank you for sharing this pattern Jane. I’ve been wanting to weave something wider on my David loom and I’ve also found a supplier that sells Harrisville Shetland here in the UK. So I’ve got to adapt the pattern to fit my loom and while doing so I notice that you have an uneven number of threads in the warp. As it’s a straight threading and the total isn’t divisible by 4, there will be odd threads left over at the end. I wondered how you would deal with them so as not to affect the twill pattern?
You’ll be fine as long as you balance any changes to your design, you want your twill lines to continue to flow. If you only have a couple of threads that you need to remove, take them out of your selvedges - no one, including you, will notice the difference! Keep us posted!
Thanks Sandra. I have finished weaving the blanket and now that it is wet finished, I think it's turned out quite well. Unfortunately the Harrisville Shetland proved to be rather weak and I'm not sure I'd use it as warp again. There were two threads that broke several times and mending them proved to be a real nightmare, but after wet finishing the mend is barely visible. Phew! Thank you so much for all the great videos over the years.
