In March 2014, I started a weave with patterns of Swedish lace
(pages 187 - 188)


The yarn I used for this weave in the warp
was old Belgian linen yarn for real bobbin lace.

     
'Lin à dentelles brillanté'
(polished linen thread for lacemaking)
This yarn was strong and easy to weave.
       
However, for some reason, it took a century to me to finish this weave...


After more than two years,
I finally asked Teddy to help me to pick up the threads.

It is a woven with 4 shafts.
The warp is threaded in repeated blocks
 [1,4,1,4,1,2,1,4,1,4,1,2,3,2,3,2,1,2,3,2,3,2]

With the remaining warp, I tried a different pattern
which consisted of simply alternating shafts 1,2,3,4.
                       
          
I finally finished this weave in the beginning of January 2017.
