Double Binding technique - it is a block weave, on 4 shafts. I found this threading and tie-up in The Big Book of Weaving first, so I used it. It makes and interesting rug. Other samples suggest a taquete block weave threading, which I'll use next time, along with bigger blocks, and better colours. However, it was a sample and I used thrift store sheets, so colour choice was limited.
The yellow rug is using the above threading but a tabby treadling. I cut the rag strips 1.25 in wide, which nicely got rid of the baby print. The fabric from the crib duvet cover and 2 curtains was very good quality though, so I'd hoped it would make an interesting all over pattern.
The green rug, which I cut off the loom as I was pretty sure I didn't want to make another of these. I pulled a couple of inches of warp out to make it a tad thinner, as it was catching on the unused heddles. Then I re-threaded the whole warp with the double bind weave, as above. If I were a tad taller, or at least with a longer reach, threading from the front would be much more enjoyable. Unless I grow a couple of inches in the near future though, it is a bit of an awkward process.
I used a couple of leftover bits of quilting fabric to weave off the last bit of the warp. The fabric didn't go nearly as far as I thought it would. The double bind weave technique uses a lot more fabric than plain weave. It makes sense since you are pretty much covering one weft strip with another. If I can find some strap webbing in the right colour though, it will make a
