Diagonal Twists

Here is today’s fun! Exchanging row/column loops.

I saw an amazing design in the Harrisville Designs potholder competition this summer — and am sad to have mislaid the weaver’s name.

Today I was inspired to try it. I quite like the outcome. And there are SO MANY possibilities, my brain hurts.

My first effort was white/blue/silver — and I did not like it when woven. It looks fine in the photo, but did not appeal in the hand. So I pulled out the center square, and patched in a purple center instead. Ripping out its heart gave me a chance to show you the inner structure of the twisted loops.

First attempt using blue / white / silver. Ugh. Removing the silver.
