Is there any way you could post the tie-up for this? It's sooooo amazing! I'm the head of the Seattle Weaver's Guild sheep to shawl this year and something like that would blow people's minds. If you don't want to share I understand but could you tell me how you took a cross stitch pattern and made it into a weaving pattern? Thanks! You roooock so hardcore. I can't wait to show my friends this link tomorrow at the meeting.

Oops, didn't mean to take so long to respond. Sorry.
I'm not sure about the English terms, but is this the tie-up? That's the modified pattern we used to program the loom.
Every other weft thread was according to the pattern and every other in plain weave. We entered every square of the pattern into a special computer program, then we transferred the data to a machine to make a punched tape that we used to control the loom. Does that make sense? It's hard to explain when I don't know the names of things in English.

That is impressive. What kind of loom do you have?

Thank you!
I didn't do it on my loom, it's one of the school's. I don't know what it's called in English but it's machine driven and you enter the pattern into a computer and then transfer it to a punched tape that you put in the loom.

Thank you! No, luckily we didn't have to warp it up, that would have been a lot of work! But maybe that's waiting for us in the next weaving course... Smiley
