Hello. I am attempting to weave teatowels with a Bronson lace pattern the plain weave is 2,3,4 against 1. And the Bronson block is 2,3,4 1,4 etc…. All sheds are lovely but the tension on the bottom of the shed for 2,3,4 is dismal my shuttle keeps diving through. But for all other sheds the tension is great. What am I missing? I am considering weaving these with a really long stick shuttle……..that does not seem speedy at all, especially when I have this great new Schacht shuttle I want to try!
Thank you Jane….with your advice I believe I have a system……more tension and make sure to work with the fell a touch closer to the beater that the breast beam. I will makes notes on the draft about that!
