Overshot - A Work In Progress

I should have titled this post 'A Walk In Progress'. Since I am walking with both feet across the treadles. Or an even better title could have been 'I Am Dancing The Floor Over You'. But that sounds like a song I once heard.

I have been thinking about finding two different overshot patterns and trying that. But do you know how hard it is to find ones with the same number of picks? I guess I will have to make my own..... That will require some major thinking (on my part).

...................................or, how about weaving one rose fashion and the other star fashion!?!?

Hi. I'm a new weaver. Can you tell me where you get your beautiful overshot patterns? THIS IS GORGEOUS

Here is a great place to find FREE overshot patterns. This one is an eight shaft 11 treadle overshot draft found in Handwoven. I can't find the exact article. That info might be in an older post.

Or look for some books in a guild library. Atwater, Tidball, Davidson, are some of the older authors who did great work!
