10 Variations Drafts

Experience diversified weaving. These drafts are for a Two Tie block unit weave. While these drafts have been set up for a loom that has 18 Shafts- 16 are used for pattern and 2 for the tie-downs.  Variations 5, 6, 7 and 8 can be woven on a loom with as few as four shafts if weaver makes use of the principles of overshot block threading.  The drafts are optimized for lift plans versus treadling on a floor loom. This structure can require more treadles that what naturally exist on a floor loom. The lift plans work great for table looms.

The details of how the drafts were created can be found on , you will have to request to join the Historic Weaving Group on Facebook, but there is no cost involved and there are detailed instructions on how this drafting process works.

The examples you see here, are reminiscent of point twill, overshot, freeform design (contemporary), and monks belt.

Using the information you learn with these drafts is it possible to weave 6 block patterns on an 8 shaft loom. Additionally, the fabric that you create will have no floats making it suitable for blankets, upholstery, and rugs.

These drafts are not “project designs” but tools you can use to sample and then create your own projects based on what you learned in the sampling process.

The product downloads as a .zip file with two folders, one for the tie-up version of the draft and the second contains the lift-plans.

The samples that you see on this page have been woven with a warp that is 30/2 cotton for the tie down threads, and a doubled 10/2 for the pattern threads.

2019 Christmas Tree

Weave your own version of my 2019 Christmas Tree using either a drawloom or pickup techniques.  This draft file has been designed for a loom that can weave 41 blocks threaded in a point. ^  The structure for weaving the original project was Opphamta.  My drawloom is set up in a combination Damask and Opphamta tie-up. I wove the original using 30/2 silk threads for the warp and the weft.   If you are weaving with a Jacquard loom or a 40 shaft loom, it is assumed you will create a suitable background structure for your tree to prevent long floats. In the pattern area the floats will be 6 blocks or less making it suitable to be woven as a twill. To convert to a 40 shaft design you would eliminate the center block (block 41). The file you will download is a *.zip file, open it and you will find a *.wif file inside.

This design can be adapted to smaller looms by eliminating the rows at the bottom of the tree until you have enough shafts to weave the design on your loom.

About Handwovens:
Weaving by hand is a “slowmade” product. There are many hours that go into planning, warping and threading a loom before something is actually woven. Because weavers use high quality materials to make their handwovens pricing may differ from what you would expect in a local store or mall.  A handwoven item will often last 10-15 or more times than an item that has been mass produced. Purchasing handwoven goods helps to preserve the art of handweaving for future generations.
