FINALLY! I figured out how to do one weft double weave!
It requires a special warping and multiple passes per row of weave. If you get it right it will let you have a solid background for your designs. It also is one color on one side and the other color on the flip side. It is also a very heavy weave. On the thick side, unless you use fine thread/yarn. I went for something heavier for this one. The first one I did a few months ago is very small and somewhat thinner. This is an extremely laborious technique, very time consuming. It took me HOURS to do these pieces, I figure around 6 hrs. I also found that the tensioning needs to be flexible and I had to do alot of fiddling with it on the loom. Very easily achieved if the loom is attached to your body. This definitely works better on a backstrap. Guess I am in for another shot at backstrap weaving. LOL
As usual I got my information from Laverne Waddington's Backstrap blog. She is also found on Weavezine and Weavolution. Both excellent sites for weaving information. We are both also on Ravelry and I find great information there also. Ravelry has great info for knit and crochet kind of fiber art also.
So here are my pictures. Keep watching for one I do on the actual backstrap with a design....eventually.
