Weaving Draft

The weaving draft for this Sami band:

A pickup weaving pattern for a Sami 2 Hole Rigid Heddle loom, worked over 9 pattern threads.

      Please note:

 

    The pattern draft has been turned on its side so that it fits better on the page.

To read the draft, the background pattern threads are threaded alternately through the bottom set of holes and the slots.
e.g. in this pattern starting from the right side, there are 2 green threads, 4 white, 2 red, 2 blue, 4 red and so on. Thread the first green yarn through the first slot on the right, the next green through the bottom hole, the next white through the following slot, next white through the next bottom hole etc. Continue following the pattern and warp the loom across.

Once you have completed threading the background threads, then thread the white pattern threads (9) centering them into the middle of the warp and thread them through the top holes.

Beaivi:

      Wikipedia
    Beaivi (or Päivi in Finnish) is the Sami name for the Sun or Sun deity. In Sami myth, she travels with her daughter Beaivi-nieida through the sky in an enclosure covered by reindeer bones, bringing green plants back to the winter earth for the reindeer to eat. She was also called upon to restore the mental health of those who went insane because of the continual darkness of the long winter.
