More corduroy

After the first corduroy samples I abandoned the table loom and put the next warp on the AVL. Much easier!

I had studied the corduroy chapter in The techniqes of rug weaving and wanted to try several ideas.

The first experiment was using two colurs in various sequences, with and without ground picks (front and reverse):

On page 408 there is a description of how to get triangles just by combining colours. The result is pictured in the gallery section:

I tried that (the very uppermost part of the uncut sample).
Here is what it looks like when cut:

My triangles are not very... well defined... But, perhaps, using "proper" rug quality yarns would have helped?

Oh, and I should point out that I did not even think about selvage treatment - that will be for another sample.
