Rigid Heddle Weaving: How to Use a Pick Up Stick. You can do more than tabby (plain weave) with a rigid heddle.
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.
