Double Weave Pickup

Double Weave Pickup

Well Folks, I tried a new technique today, it’s from the Jan/Feb 1999 issue of Handwoven. You can see the page I did at my pickup page which describes my technique more.

This is the partially finished project.

I lifted up shafts 2 & 4 and picked up with the knitting needle all the stitches that were the pattern,
then I pushed the needle to the beater.

I let go of 2 & 4 and lifted shaft 1.

Leaving shaft 1 up,
I threw the background weft (the yellow) from the right, then beat.

I then lifted shafts 1&3 and picked up with the knitting needle all the background parts of the pattern.

I then lifted shaft 2 and then threw the pattern weft from the right.
I repeated this process again, throwing from the left, and lifting shafts 3, then 4.
I kept this up until I was done and the middle square was actually a pocketed double weave…. So I stuffed it with poly-fill, and then threw the next background and pattern weft and followed the process for awhile:

This is time consuming but it’s really neat!
