<p>The first draft is Estes' original overshot draft. The second image is that draft converted to shadow weave using the Atwater system, with no incidentals at the turning points. You can see that the pattern is very hard to discern at this scale. The third draft shows several more repeats of the pattern but the scale reduced several times, so that you can see how the pattern would look in fine thread or at a distance. The fourth drafts is the same as the second one - a simple conversion with no incidentals - but the weft is woven with alternating one thick pick, then one thin pick - you can see the pattern clearly. </p>
