Turned Taqueté July 2016




Very pretty scarf! Turned taquete is a great choice for a painted warp. Your treadling is unusual. I have woven several pieces with advancing or network drafted twill pattern treadlings but only with an initial of 4, while yours is mostly initial 3 (because it is a 4-end advancing twill instead of 5-end). The result has a softer outline than the usual pattern treadling, which has no special requirements and is generally drawn freehand- the same design could be woven with a pattern sequence like 3,3, 4, 4, 5, 5, or 3,3,3, 4,4,4, 5,5,5. You might try this with weaving software and compare results.

Do you have an 8-shaft AVL loom? If you have more than 8, do try using all of your shafts for each layer of warp sometime. This structure  is fun to design and fun to weave.
