You are right about no “stupid” questions, Patricia! I dug out my old Handwoven and found the pattern you are referring to. It’s 4 shaft Rosepath - you can certainly increase it to 8 shafts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 - but that will make your stripes wider. I was chatting with a very talented friend of mine - and she suggested that you could also alternate the Rosepath draft to 1,2,3,4,1,4,3,2,1 and then 8,7,6,5,8,5,6,7,8 and alternate the two across your warp. Hopefully, this helps and gives you something to draw out on your graph paper.
