It is Christmas time again. I have been able to get back to the drawloom this winter and I designed and wove a new Christmas Tree using the rules for Opphamta. My original inspiration was a counted cross stitch design that I saw on Pinterest. The design as I first saw it was not suitable for weaving in Opphamta. I made the necessary modifications and discovered that it can be woven on a drawloom that has 41 blocks. This can be accomplished with either a single unit drawloom, or a 50 shaft drawloom. The pattern can be modified to be woven on looms with less than 40 blocks by eliminating the rows from the bottom of the tree.
If you are interested in purchasing the original piece that I wove on the drawloom, please contact me via email, or PM me on facebook.
If you are more interested in weaving your own tree. I have posted the *.wif file for the draft in my shop: https://historicweaving.com/wordpress/products-page/weaving_drafts_computer/2019-christmas-tree/ it is a $3 download.
