A Tablet Woven Insulae Draconis Sun

This woven version of the ID sun makes a handsome belt or trim for your favourite tunic.

Difficulty Level: Easy
A simple tablet weaving pattern in black, yellow and blue

20 4-holed tablets

40 blue threads

20 yellow threads

20 black threads

Thread your tablets as shown in the weaving draft. Turn your tablets either continuously forward or backward. When you have built up twist behind the tablets, either comb out the excess twist and re-secure the warp or start to turn the tablets in the opposite direction.

As with all of the free patterns on this site, you are welcome to weave them, sell bands woven using them, and use them to teach other weavers, just as long as you state where you found them.
