DESIGNING WITH CURVES
'Pattern Telescoping'
Judie Eatough

1. Draw a curve. Use as many rows as you like.
2. Enter it as threading and copy it for the treadling.
3. Choose tieups that will reduce the curve to the number of profile blocks that you want.
4. Fine tune the draft.

 

Tieup #1 C Telescope to 4 blocks.

Tieup # 2 C Turned Twill for 8 blocks.

Tieup #3 C 3/3 twill for 6 blocks.

Tieup #4 C Counterchanged for 4 blocks.

Curves

Designs using four curves (graphs are below) and the above tieups to experiment with designs.

Each curve has been reduced to a new curve that has the predetermined number of blocks (or fewer). After generating the new draft, new variations can be tried.
