I absolutely love the turned twill towels but the rising shed tie ups are giving me fits. I have tried inverse tie up. Something is not right. I used rising shed tie up one. It looks fine but blocks a and b are reversed. Any of the broken tie ups are inverted. For example tie up 5 on X treadles A blocks are weft predominant and B block is warp predominant. A is straight and B is broken.
On Y treadles A and B are warp predominant A is straight and B is broken.
I have tried weaving without making adjustments, thinking the correct version is on the reverse side but I don’t think that is the case.. and I can’t stand not seeing the correct look.
For rising shed it should be x treadles A straight and warp predominant B broken and weft predominant.
Has anyone figured out the correct tie ups to match the rising shed outcomes?
Your pattern will be on the underside of the cloth if you have used the tie-up for rising shed. For sinking shed like our David’s (I have one as well) you look at the tie-up chart and you tie-up all the empty spots. So for the top left box you tie-up 8, 7, 6, 5 and for the top right box you tie-up 765, 865, 875, 876. If you put the rising shed tie-up chart on a thin piece of paper, and flipped it over - that’s what you’d see. Here’s an article from the Knowledge Base which explains it all in Jane’s words. https://janestaffordtextiles.com/knowledge-base/rising-shed-sinking-shed-which-tie-up-do-i-use/. Hope this helps.
