Anyone have any resources for krokbragd?
I have read once, somewhere, in an elusive book whose name I no longer recall. (because it was not what I was looking for at the time) that the structure had some roots as far back as Egypt. But as I wasn't reading the book for that, don't know for sure. For those of you who don't know what Krokbragd is, it is a three shaft weave structure that at this point in time, as far as I can tell, is based in Norway. The weave structure is a point twill on three shafts, with the treadling constantly 1&2, 2&3 and 3&1. The pattern is completely a function of the colors of the yarns and where they are in the treadling. There is a discussion of it right now in another thread so you can go and look at what they are discussing if you wish. But there is no mention of time frame or even if it really could be a period weave. It is a great way to use up left over bits of wool yarn .
