Ermine 4: a change in direction

Ermine spots can be depicted as either being parallel to the edges of a band, or perpendicular to it. This pattern is one of the first I devised that shows the motif perpendicular to the band.

The sample shown was made using 2/16wc (18/2nm) wool for the warp, and two strands of sewing thread for the weft. I matched the weft colour to the foreground. The gauge for the piece was about 29 cards per inch, and 28 rows per inch.

If you do try the pattern out, let me know! I’d love to see your work 🙂
