Danskbragd Done More Cleverly Than I Knew

Danskbragd on six shafts

Veronna Capone gave me more information about her beautiful danskbragd piece.  I assumed she used a pick-up technique for portions of the diamond design, but she set me straight. “The red and black Danskbrogd piece I did for Jan’s class wasn’t done with pick up but with a 6 harness threading which splits each of the three when a spot of Danskbrogd is desired.  I used one of her designs and none of it made sense until I got going on the weave.  Those looms take a strong stomp when you’re lifting several shafts.”
