So now, I have lashed back on and will try my hand at starting and stopping the resist threads. Remember, where I will not have any resist pattern, my base plain weave cloth will be a solid color.
Here you can see that I have three shuttles going. One for the plain weave base and two with resist threads. You do not have to weave that resist thread from selvage to salvage!You can go part way to the center then back, you can go in and out any where your resist pattern will let you. You may have to cut your resist thread here and there, but that is OK. Just remember to leave a little loop or long tail to grab to help pull the resist threads later.
You could also just lay in your resist thread instead of using a shuttle.
Yes, this is slow and there may be a faster, better way than I am doing. So think out side the box and weave on!
Remember, where there is only white plain weave it will be a solid color. Your goal is to have the dye be resisted in certain areas. Using a twill treadling or overshot treadling helps you get that pattern onto your plain weave base cloth. (Of course your base cloth could be twill but that is another long story!)
