daldräll och gagnefkrus

Now daldräll – swedish heirloom version of overshot, the pattern is not perfectly symmetrical, which is considered to be  charming and folkish.

tried different material for the pattern weft- various linen threads,raw silk, the favorite is thin hemp held double:

the book of all sorts of Daldräll patterns by Anna Thomasson och Elisabeth Andersson

on the same warp – changing the tie-up of the treadles gives  gagnefkrus, a variant of honeycomb

just playing around

Gagnef is here.

    Vilket roligt “krus” med trådarna som flyter omkring.

    Аля, очень здорово! :) Выражение “сharming and folkish” идеально передает ощущения :))

    Hej Alfia, alltid kul att se dina fina alster! Hoppas kunna följa dig och bli inspirerad. Jag har t ex börjat fundera på att väva något annat än trasor…
