Which pattern should I choose?
I've never tried crepe, so it must be it.
I know the Sekku yarn is a weft yarn, however I want to try different yarn types / colors in the warp, but I find it difficult to determine which and there are also more freedom to choose if I use Sekku'en as a warp.
So I did! The first break in the warp thread was already on the warping board!
There were 2 broken warp threads before I had woven 20 cm. But then the warp was steady the following meter and then there was just 3 broken treads in the last 20 cm. So one can be learning it!
I wove 2 different crepe patterns, both 8 shafts and 8 treadles.
First tie up is from Mastering Weave Structures.
|Drops Lace - Merino and silk|
The second tie up I found in Varp och Inslag (Warp and Weft)
The sett is too close, so there is not as much movement after washing, as I could wish.
After washing the pattern from Mastering Weave Structures looks like this:
The samples from Varp och Inslag have more structure
Next move will be a new sample weave with worsted yarn as warp and with more loose sett.
