Outlining

Outlining can be done by weaving a narrow line of a few rows, by warp-wrapping and twinning. The latter has been used to define the green diamonds in the test piece.

Much of the outlining in the lichen sampler, where the line is vertical,  has been achieved by weaving on one warp, and this requires considerable dexterity! For the more horizontal lines, it’s achieved by eccentric weaving, where the distortions also add to the design. 

Materials: fine worsted wool. Woven at 4 epc.
