Re: Rigid Heddle question

Hiya, I don't think of it in those terms as when you put the heddle in the down position it's like a sinking shed, and when you put it in the up position, it's like a rising shed (sort of -- I'm typing this pre-coffee). For converting patterns I find it more useful to think in terms of peg plans.
If you have one heddle, you can do 2-shaft patterns without pickup.
Two heddles, 3-shaft patterns
Three heddles, 4-shaft patterns -- but this is pretty darn fiddly.
I'm going to go have coffee now... :)
