New Weaver with a Question

if i have a 4 shaft...4 treadle loom....and the first pik tells me to lift 234..... would it make a difference if i reversed all of them and only lifted 1..... and then if they were to say lift 2 & 4... i would lift 1&3??????????

just curious

Yes, you would, in effect, be weaving your fabric up side down, but it would work.  And makes more sense given you have a direct tie up.  :)
