Halvdrall is closely related to Monk's Belt and Overshot and we expand on it here in this lesson. We learned to overlay colour and weave on top of all of this and how to weave with one shuttle.
Take a wonderful Overshot pattern designed by Bertha Gray Hayes, tweak the float length a teeny weeny bit, add a layer of Log Cabin on top of the overshot threading and voila....you have Overshot that takes on an entirely new look.
Crackle on opposites, opposite blocks with two contrasting colours makes our graphics very powerful.
We took Summer and Winter graphics and made them big with one coloured warp and one colored weft on 4 shafts
