The Master at the Rigid Heddle is Jane at Schacht. Seeing what she does on the Flip reminds me how versatile the loom really is. So much that you can do on a harness loom can be done on the Rigid Heddle with a few pick up sticks. I linked to her page where she has a beautiful honeycomb patterned cloth she’s working on.
This is mine:
And it’s a horrible photo. The pillow top will also look different when it’s not stretched out on the loom. I’m about 6 inches from having my pillow topper done and I’ll post a photo of that as soon as I have it washed and completed.
For those that are visual learners and need a bit of help, a tutorial:
My warp is Spunky Super Sport in Mud Season The weft is the same but with the “thick yarn” being Biggie yarn. My pattern:
Stick A: 6 down, 6 up
Stick B: 6 up, 6 down
Pass 3-8: Repeat 1 and 2
Pass 9: Heddle up and pattern stick A
Pass 10: Heddle down and use the heavy yarn
More giftie stuff tomorrow.
