Weave Along 25: Double Face Tablet Weaving: Laurel Leaves

The pattern I used for the Laurel Leaves pattern

I found this pattern years ago from Carolyn Priest-Dorman. She has a number of great articles and research on Norse-related topics here: https://www.cs.vassar.edu/~capriest/vikresource.html

I had wanted to try double face weaving again–it’s been years since I tried it–so I chose this pattern:

 Laurel sprig with thin stem

The pattern for this double face pattern can be found here: https://www.cs.vassar.edu/~capriest/laurel.html

But not being used to this kind of pattern and having reservations about trying to accurately follow this unusual draft, I decided to translate it into the TDD software and came up with this pattern:

This should be pretty easy to follow, if you’re familiar with the TDD threading and turning notations.

  1. How robust is the silk weaving? Does it withstand machine washing or hand wash only? Hopefully now I’m working again I can save up for some silk. Really interested in the mechanics of this type of weaving. Thank you.

  2. just started my first tablet weave. I used cottolin but findthat the threads get snagged and this makes the turning difficult. What yarn would you recommend for a total novice?
