Again, there are warp blocks and weft blocks, just as in the 4-shaft crackle. But there is something in addition in the 6-shaft crackle: a set of blocks which almost gives the appearance of basket weave.
Also note that though I have treadled both the 4-shaft and the 6-shaft in the same direction, the treadled pattern appears to go right to left in the 6-shaft version and left to right in the four-shaft version. Why? I reversed the tie-up. Accidentally…….. I wasn’t paying attention.
There are so many details that demand attention!
