Clover

A close up photo of a textured white and purple tablet woven band with orange edges, patterned with a four leaf clover shape in the middle and twisted knot motifs on either side

When I was writing the revised edition of my book Tablet Weaving in Theory and Practice: Vacant-Hole Pinwheels, I added an extra draft to the section that covers the narrow band edging the vestigial hood (the triangle shape at the centre top) of the Hildesheim Cope. I'm sharing it on my blog as well, so that anyone who already has the first edition, but doesn't want to buy a new copy just for one new draft, can grab it here.

A tablet weaving draft for 42 tablets, represented as a grid with the threading diagram at the bottom and squares with grey and white backgrounds in the turning diagram to show the turning directions for the tablets

You can download the TDD file for this draft by clicking here.

In the following text version of the draft, "Empty" denotes a vacant hole.

As with all of the free drafts/ 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.
