If you add another heddle and/or pick up sticks, you can venture into 3, or even 4 shaft weaving territory. I already explored some of that in my previous double weaving projects. Double weaving basically is 4 shaft weaving: you need two shafts for each layer. Combining a second heddle and two pick up sticks gives you just that. In the past few days I have been weaving with a second heddle without pick up sticks.

The threads that need to be managed by shaft 1 need to go through the holes of rigid heddle 1 and the slots of rigid heddle 2. Once you understand this, you can easily convert three shaft patterns to rigid heddle language. Let me explain what I mean. For clarity I have given each thread a different colour (red = shaft 1, purple = shaft 2, green = shaft 3). Avec2cadres. Brefs. Potholder Pattern Booklet #1 by Harrisville Designs. Rigid Heddle Weaving: How to Use a Pick Up Stick. You can do more than tabby (plain weave) with a rigid heddle.

Rigid Heddle Weaving: How to Use a Pick Up Stick

You start with Pick Up Control. That's done by pushing your heddle into the down position and inserting a warp separator such as a stick, paper, cardboard or anything into the shed created behind the heddle so that you can see only all the slot threads. Then you use a pick up stick to pick up only those slot threads you want to use in your design. Once you do that you remove the separator and leave only the pick up stick in place. Once the stick is in place, it's a matter of leaving it near the warp beam (neutral position) or bringing it behind the heddle, either laying flat or turned on edge.

In this video I picked up 2 slot threads, skipped 2 slot threads, then did a repeated sequence of moving the heddle up or down, while moving the stick forward or back, etc. Here's how to produce a waffle weave (great for towels or blankets) Waffle Weave: How to Read a Weaving Draft to use with String Heddles.

Center the warp in the rigid heddle for 9.75 inches. For the direct warping method, thread 9.75 inches worth of slots. Wind the warp on the back beam adding packing paper between the layers. Move one thread in each slot to a hole to its right. Be sure that you start and end in a slot for the pattern to work. Place the pick up stick: When using a pick-up stick you only want to pick up threads that are in the slots. To make sure you only pick up the slot ends, place the rigid heddle in the down position so that the slot threads are up. Slide the stick to the back of the loom until ready for use. WEAVING Wind one shuttle with the project weft and one with a smooth scrap yarn. Using your project weft, open a down shed and insert your first pick, leaving a short tail of about 6 inches.
