#13 Sotis Cloth

Dorothy has been experimenting with this 4-shaft adaptation of a backstrap structure, by weaver Kay Faulkner, featured in an article in Handwoven Mar/Apr 2013 pg 30-31.

The weave is called "Sotis"

It's very interesting. Unless you actually weave this adaptation you can't really analyze how clever it is!

The Handwoven article gives the draft and instructions.
