My first completed pick-up inkle band!
I did about as much “unweaving” with this band as I did weaving, but in the end I am really happy with the final result. The two pick-up patterns are Baltic-style pick-up on 13 warp ends from page 75 of Anne Dixon’s wonderful book The Weaver’s Inkle Pattern Directory 400 Warp-Faced Weaves.
Stay tuned for the cute project planned for this band…
warp, weave, be happy!
Thank you, Paulette! Just need to use it for something.
Great to se e your work. Will you be attending FTW Conference at Lake Yale?
Pat and I are be there. we met you in NC at Anne Dixons workshop.
Hope to see you there,
It was great to see you at FTWG!
Oh yeah! I got her book for Christmas and I can’t wait to try the Baltic patterns. Really pretty color combination! 🙂

I have never used my vintage threads, but I have over dyed used threads to use in my punched pieces. I like your article on marker painted thread, nice idea. I have art markers and that would be a nice way to add a little mottling to my threads.
Hmmm, that sounds interesting. Would love to know if you try the mottling idea.
Very pretty! The one I just finished was one of the 9 pattern thread designs, and I too did just about as much unweaving as weaving!
It WAS a struggle in the beginning but it was well worth it for the final result.
Love the color combinations! Have the book too, just haven’t figured out how to do the Baltic style.

The book is tge best inkle thing ever! But the baltic technique is actually one of the most straight foreward techniques in the book. Every color square in represents a pattern thread on the loom. If the book shows a color square, in an open shed, pick up the corresponding thread. Change sheds, beat, repeat. How that helped a bit. If not let me know.

I bought the book and I am trying to do baltic 13-2. But I am just not getting it. I think I need to see a video of this. 😦

I did get the warp set up it is making the pattern that I do not understand.
