Notes: 

Following a pattern to emulate an eight harness pinwheel pattern on a rigid heddle. A pickup stick is used to create the sheds that would be created by the eight harnesses on a floor loom. Once you get the pattern down it moves fairly quickly. I am concentrating on getting a proper and even beat as well as figuring out how to carry the yarn up the selvedge without it being a real mess!

2/24/13 - in addition to pinwheels I am playing with doing a 2/2 twill and some variations with one heddle and one pickup stick - still playing with getting my packing correct for the pinwheels. . .

Great!

I love pinwheels and I think it's really great that you've found a way to weave them on a rigid heddle loom! Looks like the fabric is turning out very nicely!

this is really cool.  I hope you publish the pattern somewhere once you figure it out.

mastering pinwheels

The pinwheels look like they are coming out near perfect from one row to the next. Looks like your mastering it. :)
