Is there a draft available for this anywhere?

Hi, yes, I put a draft for this in the study groups gallery. This weave was using the original draft (draft 1), but I preferred the amended version. Unless you were going to use it with wool, which might spring up more, in which case it might look better than the cotton did with the longer floats. You could also do the same thing with 4 shafts, the floats would be shorter and it might be better in 2 colours then.

This is beautiful!  The waffle weave is one of my absolute favorites!  I've been weaving scarves of my alpaca with it.

Thank you for your nice comments!

Nevak, I think you can do a simple waffle weave on a rigid heddle loom. Have you looked at the free e-projects which include one? Go to

Best wishes

Cannot seem to locate your draft.  We are interesting in doing baby blankets.  How do we get a copy of your draft?  I am brand new to this site and just a beginner.  Thanking you in advance.

Hi, the draft is in the study groups section, under galleries in the menu at the top of the page.

 

You can do it also on 4 shafts though the floats are not as long. It isn't a very difficult weave, I don't think.

 

Good luck. Thanks
