Back to gauze weave

I've been doing some more gauze weave samples.  This sample is in 10/2 cotton set at 20 ends per inch, 4 ends per dent in a 5-dent reed.

The pattern is from a publication from 1890 about mechanized production of leno and figured leno, Die mechanische Weberei und die Fabrikation der Kunst- und Figurendreher, available on or The notation is all in German but I can follow the diagrams just fine.  I had to rearrange the shaft usage for best sheds on my loom.

It will be interesting to see how this looks once it comes off the loom and is wet-finished.
