Saami Band Weaving -Weaving Drafts

A weaving draft for making a traditional Saami belt.
This type of weaving pattern was traditionally woven on a small rigid heddle type of loom. Some of the Saami heddle reeds also had an additional hole in them, that was for the pattern warp threads, so that they could be picked up easily from the warp.
