Another One Shuttle Weave on SW Threading- Bronson

This example could be called the Bronson Effect.

Using my summer and winter THREADING of two blocks and using only one shuttle this is called a 'Bronson Lace Treadling Sequence'. I think this will resemble a waffle weave effect when washed. These one shuttle weaves are much faster to weave than traditional summer and winter. This cannot be called S&W because we do not treadle according to the rules. It's more of a 'method' of weaving.

My treadling sequence is:
1-2, 1-4, 1-2, 1-4, 1-2, 3-4
1-2, 1-3, 1-2, 1-3, 1-2, 3-4    repeat for desired length.

For those who have access to the Handweaver Guild of America library you might be able to check out SUMMER AND WINTER STUDY of DES MOINES WEAVERS GUILD, Marian Powell. Their study of summer and winter has endless possibilities to explore. My example from yesterdays post and today's came from that source. I didn't see a date, so hopefully the title will help you find this publication.
