Noughts and Crosses

If you've read my work, you'll know that I really enjoy designing warp-twining bands with many non-repeating motifs. Lately, I wanted something a little simpler, but still in the same style, so I came up with this one and I thought it would be fun to share it. 

Apart from the six selvedge tablets, it's twist neutral, so you won't get any build up of twist behind the pattern tablets. I've been flipping the selvedge tablets after every two repetitions of the draft. I wove it in King Cole Merino Blend 4-ply as it has a good range of colours and has the bonus of being superwash. The band is 5cm wide.

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.
