- Aug 18, 2012Anya,
Answering this & the comment you left on my site: there is a reference to fabric with a "diamond" or "rhomb" pattern brocaded into it in Kolchin. See Sofya La Rus's translation here:http://www.strangelove.net/~kieser/Russia/kolchin.html%c2%a0 it's towards the end of of Page 94.
For the project you commented on from my website, I was just learning card weaving for the first time, so I used a very simple pattern that I felt was at least 'diamond'-like, given my limited skills. I have not done any extended research into narrow weaving in Rus, but it's something I should look at.... hm....
now with a new project,

Subject: [sig] Card Weaving in Kievan Rus
Greetings to the list,
Does anyone know of card/tablet weaving examples from Kievan Rus or
nearby regions? I'd like to weave a belt for myself, but can't find a
source for reproducible patterns. I might just base a pattern on
embroidery or architectural motifs, but was really looking for
something more precise that I can site in documentation.
