Re: "Pick by Pick Treadling" question
Hi Michelletoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The treadling sequence is not always the same as the threading in many weave structures.
Also lace weaves like huck lace are often shown as “block” threading and treadling where groups of ends in warp or weft are shown, usually by a filled in square, which represents several ends in a sequence which is shown elsewhere.
When the author says “pick by pick” she has listed every weft pick which should be easier for you to follow. But as she is giving treadle numbers for the pattern treadles, if you are using a table loom you would need to look at your tie-up to see which shafts to lift each time.
If using a table loom it would probably be easier to work through the treadling and write out the shafts lifted for the weft as a liftplan. If you are using Fiberworks software you can enter the draft with a tie-up and treadling and then use the software to change it to a liftplan. This can probably be done with other software too.
If you are using a treadle loom, just tie up your treadles as shown in the tie-up and treadle in the order given and see what happens!
Lace weaves often don’t look like you expect while they are the loom - the lace will “magically” appear when the fabric is wet finished.
Hope this makes sense!
