<p>This is one of my favorite ways to "free weave."&nbsp; I start with a number, in this case the prime number 17.&nbsp;&nbsp; I wind the warp with 16 of color A and 1 of color B (total 17), followed by 15 of A and 2 of B (total 17), etc down to 1 of A and 16 of B.&nbsp;&nbsp; I thread 1, 2, 3, 4 and just play with different treddling patterns.&nbsp;&nbsp; The warp is wool.</p><p>This jack has a heavy, 100% silk lining, so it's kind of a fall jacket.</p>
