Overshot Spring Flowers on Silk Ground -Adapted by Pat Davidson

Warp Yarn: 30/2 Natural coloured Silk
Sett: 30 epi; Reed: 15; Sley: 2 ends/dent
Weft Yarn: tabby same as warp; pattern embroidery cotton 2 plies, various colours

This is a great little overshot draft which looks o.k. on the back and has such short floats one wouldn’t have to hide the back with a large hem. The draft shows a couple of treadling options for different styles of flowers.
