Also from class…
It’s hard to see the details in this very small photo, but the pattern area has small diamonds and the structure uses 3 tie downs in rosepath order.
This structure has 4 tie downs per block.
Bateman Multi-Tabby –
The bottom part of the sample is treadled as written and the other two mix-up the treadle order. Very subtle but effective.
We have a scarf sample of a Bateman Multi-Tabby at our shows. I can’t put my hands on the photo, so stop by the booth!
Diane and I had a great weekend and really enjoyed having so much time blocked out just to weave. The Bateman Multi-Tabby is one of Diane’s favorites. Now that I’m home, I want to revisit some of the weaves we worked on and get a little more creative. Many of these structures were used for traditional coverlets, but we all know that I’m not very traditional. We only used 8 harnesses in class, but I have 32 to play with! I’d like to experiment with more blocks and some abstract arrangements. And , of course, with JOY 60/2 silk or 30/2 Tencel.
Diane and I will be doing another workshop with Tom in May focusing just on the Bateman Multi-Tabby structure, so look out for more samples!
