Random Stripes

There are a number of ways to make stripes. You can make them symmetrical, use a fibonacci sequence, use a stripe generator, wrap yarns around a piece of cardboard, etc. In this case I had a bunch of leftover warp yarn from rug making in various small amounts. So I laid them out in what seemed a pleasing color order and then just wound a stripe until I ran out of yarn or got to an inch of warp. If there was still yarn left on the cone after an inch I put it back in the sequence. I'm rather pleased with the result.
I'm weaving it up in a fancy 8 harness twill using blue or yellow or green as weft. I have enough warp for 6 runners so will experiment with treadling and color on each one.

  1. Wonderful twill, Margaret, colors, too. Don't you just love warps where you can play with weft colors and treadling and see what you come up with!
