This pattern I designed on my double heddle graph paper ( [link]
) to look like a finger woven piece. (Similar to [link]
) The way it looks is the "old" or old fashioned part. The way I'm weaving it, and that it's a new pattern for me, is the "new" part.
Edit: New photo of the finished piece showing the (too short in my opinion) fringe.
The warp threads are what you see and are Red Heart brand yarn. The weft threads that go back and forth (you don't see much, except in spots on the back) are some leftover Rayon that was on the shuttle from a previous weaving.
Weaving with a thinner weft thread makes it a much tighter weave than my other double heddled patterns, by nearly 16% more passes per length.
