    Hi Susan,

    The draft is for unwashed Harrisville so you’re all good to go to make your warp and try this technique, you’ll enjoy weaving double width  🙂

    I have unwashed Harrisville Shetland cones.  I’m not sure if Jane’s instructions are for washed or unwashed Harrisville Shetland or whether it  makes a difference.  Would appreciate advice on proceeding or not with the unwashed version.

    I finished my shawl and I love it!  Can’t see fold.  I have not brushed it.   Love the drape.   Learned a lot by doing sample first. Now I want to do more.  Perhaps  softer yarn.  Maybe a zephyr shawl?

    Hi Ginette, I’m sorry to seem so helpless amongst all this lovely work that is being shared .  What I couldn’t make sense of last night was the actual placement of the T’s and B’s in the tube section. I remember Jane’s chanting now. I hope it will be fairly plain sailing from here on.  Thanks so much for your speedy help.

    Hi Sue,

    Are you weaving T, B, T, B and following the direction of the arrows on the draft with your shuttle? Basically, it’s lifting one of the T layers, then one B layers, then your 2nd T layer and finally your second B layer to make a continuous loop with your weft and that’ll create the tube.

    No Ginette , unfortunately it didn’t but it’ s more positive than it was. I now have the middle working and one fold . I am following the top draught 1/2, 3/4 but just can’t think how to interpret the lifts for the tube so I can  get 2 folds! Please help. Thanks so much.

    Hi Sue,

    Which of the drafts are you trying from page 3, the top draft or the bottom draft? Also, can you try and reverse the tie-up? Lift the harnesses that are not marked on the draft instead of the ones that are marked. For example, the top draft, for the first top layer (T), lift harnesses 2, 3, 4 instead of the 1 and do the same for the other tie-ups.

    Let us know if that works

    Hi,

    I’m using a Jane table loom and leftover warp from the rep exercise which is threaded 4321. I didn’t hear Jane mention any different lift moves for a table loom but I wonder if there are as I didn’t hear any mention of anything for table looms in the videos. So far I find I cannot produce the tube. I have tried both ways she demonstrated. Jane’s videos made double weave crystal clear if there is treadling but how does it work without? I am very confused at the moment !

    DONE!! I did a few samples and it turned out that 16 epi (8 for each layer) worked out fine. I was surprised because I have Harrisville Highland which is heavier than the shetland. Just fulled it and it is soft and has a wonderful drape
