8S Advancing Lace Yardage Using JOY Almaza

This is an advancing lace structure on a plain weave ground that I found in the Greater Baltimore Weaving Guild’s book Sixty Scarves for 60 Years.  The pattern was designed by Carol Bodin, and it is called “Raku.”

JOY “Almaza”
Length: 6 yards,  35 epi, 16: wide= 560 ends + 8 ends for selvedges.  Total 568 ends

I threaded right to left and had 2 floating selvedges on the right side, then ended with threading 1,2,3,4 and two floating selvedges.  That used the 8 extra threads I assigned for the selvedges.

As you can see there are little huck interlacements on a plain weave ground.

Here is the warp.

The weft is Almaza in a different colorway.


I wove 3 1/2 yards of the lace pattern and 1 1/2 yards of plain weave for fabric to make a jacket.
