Weaver Rose and China Leaves Large

Here is another of Weaver Rose's drafts. This one he called "China Leaves Large". It was found on white pasteboard. He read it right to left and it was in his condensed #2 form. Each thread was numbered, but their position on the horizontal rows indicated the shaft number to use.

This would be a great draft to try out different effects: using different tabby colors or color rotation, or weave on opposites.

How about a white warp, and blocks on shafts 1-2 and 2-3 use red, and blocks on shafts 3-4 and 4-1 use blue.  Or could you use a dark green for tabby and light green as the pattern weft?
