diagonal as step 3
Thu Feb 8, 2018 9:28am

If I use step 3 for my first diagonal, would step 4 be my second diagonal ?
Thank you for any suggestions.

      If you do a diagonal (step 5) as step 3, you then continue with steps 3,4,6,7 in that order. I find that doing the diagonal as step 3 locks in the first 2 steps and makes squaring off the holes much... more

        Tried it out and found that it doesn’t save any time. Sticking with first diagonal as step 5.

        Thank you Dorset. I am on track to follow those steps after checking out The Caner's Handbook by Jim Widess and Bruce Miller. So far it is going well.

          I weave 2 verticals first then weave the two horizontals at the same time, coming from opposite ends. This forms the windows quite nicely and the diagonals are pretty easy.

      Steps 1-4 consist of 2 verticals and 2 horizontals. 5 and 6 are the diagonals. Are you planning on omitting 1 horizontal and 1 vertical?
