Can I weave this with the current threading on my loom?

Unknown Draft 1

The Weaver’s Question:

“So I am wondering if I can use my straight threading 1-8 using this lift pattern ?
Also what is the difference between 1 and 2? (I don’t have treadles). ”


The Answer: Yes, but you will have to know how to modify the draft in order to do so.
