Moving on to Three Blocks of Doubleweave Sprang

After the wild colors in the Trade Winds piece, I was thinking that this structure would be quite striking in black and white, or just two colors with heavy value contrast.  I used sort of a "schematic" representation to show when each block is woven leaving the warp threads unwoven to be worked in sprang, when they weave the dark color and when they weave the light color.  The Xs in the diagram are where the sprang will be worked.

I still haven't woven exactly this in high contrast yet, because in the meantime I needed to do something for the color study group that I'm in, which will be the topic of another post...
