Notes: 

3 shaft twill woven on a rigid heddle loom. I used Ella-rae sock yarn in the warp and a grey alpaca for weft-- I decided to use the 3 shaft twill because I really wanted the warp to show be shown off, it's such a pretty yarn, and would have gotten lost in plain weave.  As it turns out I'm now enamoured with 3 shaft twills, I love how the two sides are so different, and also that it's such an ancient weave structure.  And it wasn't that hard to do with 2 heddles.

ok, now you are ready

to do pick up on your rigid heddle and use the opposite twill to create a picture on your cloth! You can use the pick up stick back behind your heddles to hold your pattern base....go go go!
