I have done several plain weave and twill double width blankets using my 8 shaft schacht loom and really want to do a waffle weave but need to check out my understanding of the structure with you first. Waffle weave takes 4 shafts so do i use shafts 1+5, 2+6, 3+7, and 4+8 as pattern pairs when i am threading, with 1-4 being the top layer and 5-8 being the bottom layer?
After that i am a bit lost with the tie up., but think i tie up for the first 2 picks of the top layer in pattern, then 2 picks of the bottom, then the next two picks for the top layer finishing with the last 2 for the bottom in walking order.
If you are willing to clarify this for me i would be most grateful. I know this is beyond where this lesson is at the moment, but it is where i am and would love to try it. Thank you.
