Re: Yarn in the Hobbit
- It's an undulating twill in shadow weave. I think they used a 16 harness loom, but you can come close with a 4 harness. It's tricky--the warp alternates a light and dark thread, and so does the weft (so you use two shuttles alternatively). It takes something like 52 passes of the shuttle to complete one pattern repeat. The husband was warned to keep away from me and my loom while I was doing it.
The pattern is in some back issues of "Handwoven" magazine--I could look them up if anyone is really interested.
