Dragon pebble weave

Another Sunday, another card woven band finished. This time is was technically a pebble weave test, but I realised as I wove it that the colours were of the kind that a recent friend of me likes; dusty and not too loud. So it’s ending up as a wedding/birthday present and I hope she will like it.

As usual, Liv is very happy when given the chance to make cozy mood pictures.

… and does some really neat closeups:

The pattern is a pebble weave, similar (but not the same as) a brocade piece found in Dublin around the 10th century, tubular selvedges included. The nice thing about pebble weave is that the pattern is the same, only inverted, on the backside.

Tiny dragons say roawr!
