Welcome, my friend, to the “Bare Bones of Skeleton Tie-ups”! Skeleton tie-ups can certainly be mathematical and geeky. But, they can also be the key allowing you to enter an entire world of weaving patterns you might not otherwise be able to visit!

You see, skeleton tie-ups allow you to create a pattern using less treadles than the weaving draft calls for. As long as you have the appropriat number of shafts, you’ll be in business!

Check out episode 98 to see what all the fuss is about!

Show Notes –

Tim’s Rudimentary Treadle Reducer – It appears that a mathetician from Earlham College (which is in Indiana, thank you very much!) created a way to calculate skeleton tie-ups! I haven’t used it yet, so please let me know if you give it a try. I’ll be very curious about your experience! Click here to give it a go.

Support episodes – In episode 98, I get pretty technical – which can be confusing if you aren’t immediately familiar with all the terms. So, I’m including a few previous A Handwoven Experience videos to help you! The first one is Ep 35, “Treadles & Tie-ups“, and next is Ep 73, “Direct Tie-ups“. Click on each title to get the back story!
