This started late last night (ok it was 10:30pm, but it was a long day). I am doing the "My Very Peri Perfect Towels" from Handwoven November/December 2022 on page 71. I calculated the warp for making more then 3, got the loom set up and set up the treddles. So I finish the hem and begin the pattern sequence. I'm using the skeleton tie up option, as I'm on an 8 shaft david and don't have a loom with 12 treddles.
So I noticed that the pattern would be upside down, I forgot to convert from rising to sinking shed. So I did, but things got weird. If I treddle it, tied up the opposite from the rising shed, I get no shed. All 8 shaft will go down. So at 11:30pm last night I went into the 8 shaft pattern book by Carol Strickler which is where the towel author got the draft and it's very different from the towel pattern. I was hoping maybe I could convert the rising shed in the book, but it seems like that is going to take a bit of work to get it down to 8 treddles (I need the remaining 2 for plain weave).
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do and how to go about it? I think this pattern is the exception to the rule of just tying up the opposite treddles to convert a rising to a sinking shed.
