Weaving Treadling Options - Feather Stitch

Feather Stitch is a treadling option that Barbara Miller shared with me and basically, it uses two pattern shots to one of tabby. For a contemporary feel, use a dark warp and tabby in size 8/2 tencel, for example, and bright pattern weft such as 5/2 perle cotton. Follow twill sequence as follows:
2-3 Pattern (P)
2-4 Tabby (T)
2-3, 3-4 P
1-3 T
3-4, 4-1 P
2-4 T
4-1, 1-2 P
1-3 T
1-2 P
