*02* Goals: First time weaving, learning the basics and vocabulary. I am creating a basic chevron pattern like the second one on the left in medium green and cream colors. Not period, according to the site, but it looks nice and it's a good way to dive into the skill.
Band from Oseberg, Norway Date: early ninth century AD. Difficulty: very easy. This simple but elegant band was found in the Oseberg ship burial and is one of the most securely dated and located bands that is known. The original was woven some time before 834 AD when the ship was buried. A variation that can be woven on the same warp setup is also described. | Instructions to weave the narrow Oseberg band |
