The Lagore Crannog Band--The Beginnings of a Pattern

I have finally woven a sufficiently long proportion of my Lagore Crannog band that I can keep track of which way I have to flip the tablets for each pass. 
Top side (while weaving)
Reverse side (while weaving)

A pattern is beginning to form, though I fear I'm having to relearn any skill I had at tablet weaving and even my best sections look amateurish.  The attached photographs, which features the best section of the band to date, show the pattern.  It's kind of interesting, though I think the other side is more attractive.  I have edited the photos slightly to sharpen detail.


  1. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but my gut says you need a little more tension on on your weft.

  2. Lon, you are certainly right. This project sat for weeks because I was having trouble finding the shed when I wove, as I said in other posts. This type of loom is not readily adjustable as to tension; I'd have to reknot the strands on both sides to re-tension it, and I did not do that. Thanks for visiting, and for your comment.
