Welcome back to another fun episode. These placemats were a blast to weave. I tried all kinds of things....bringing design ideas forward, always doing the overlay thing. I created solid weft lines by not treadling a tabby between pattern picks which made that area weft-faced because the weft just packed down. I inlaid a square and surrounded it with plain weave. Repetitive sequences abound. I wove with only one shuttle and one weight, plus the regular way, tabby, float, tabby, float......... and the colour is joyful and uplifting.
I hope you have as much fun as I did. If you come up with other spectacular versions....which I'm sure you will, please share them with us on the forum. We love seeing what you are doing.
Things we will learn:
-That Monk’s Belt uses 2 opposite twill units. A is 1 and 2 and B is 3 and 4
-The number of times a unit is repeated lengthens the pattern float
-The number of times a unit can be repeated is also dependent on the EPI of the warp
-It is woven with alternating tabby picks between pattern picks
-It can be woven on other threadings ie. point twill for a 3 end unit and Huck for a 5 end unit
