Interrupted Twill Color Patterns
Interrupted twill is formed when rows of interlacing are alternated with rows of interlinking. January’s Motif B in Carol James’ 2023 SprangAlong has four rows of interlinking followed by four rows of interlacing.
When threads of two or more colors are used with this motif, new patterns emerge as the yarn moves diagonally.
Below I share some possible color patterns for this interrupted twill motif. These patterns emerge from the initial placement of the warp threads.
*Note on threads and loops: when winding threads on for a flat-warp sprang project, each thread is looped over the top of the frame and then returns to the bottom. This one loop contains two threads.
