Cardboard Box Loom – Twill

Cardboard Box Loom Weaving
Another type of common design in weaving is Twill. To weave twill 2 warp threads are raised and the next 2 warp threads are lowered. On the following row, the next 2 threads are picked up and the following 2 warp threads are lowered. This results in a diagonal design running either to the right or left depending on the direction that you are weaving.

If you number the warp threads: 1,2,3,4 (repeat)
Row 1
Pick up threads 1 and 2, skip over threads 3 and 4, pick up 1 and 2, skip 3, 4 (repeat).
Pass the weft yarn through the open shed.
Row 2
On the 2nd row, move over 1 warp thread from the previous row, and pick up the next 2 threads and lower the following 2.
Skip warp thread 1
Pick up warp threads 2 and 3
Skip threads 4 and 1
Pick up threads 2 and 3
Skip threads 4 and 1
Repeat to the end, and pass the weft thread through the open shed.
Row 3
Skip warp threads 1 and 2
Pick up threads 3 and 4
Repeat to the end of the row and pass the weft thread through the open shed.
Row 4
Pick up warp thread 1
Skip threads 2 and 3
Pick up threads 4 and 1
Skip threads 2 and 3
Pick up threads 4 and 1
Repeat this sequence to the end of the row and pass the weft thread through the open shed.
