Tic Tac Toe

Add caption

Over the last year I've been on Planet Double-Face, working on my next book (Tablet Weaving in Theory and Practice: Double-Face Inscriptions), and I needed a change of scene, so I went flicking through my folder of drafts I've designed, but not had a chance to weave yet and came across this one. It carries the same motif as one of my earlier published drafts on this site: Noughts and Crosses.

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 flip 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.

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.
