Rus Tablet Woven Band for Temple Rings

I am so happy with how this one turned out… And I think the recipient also really liked it which is also nice 🙂

As is tradition, this project went through two versions. Version one turned out OK but I want entirely happy with it.. so I did it again! I’m glad I did because I liked the second one way better and my technique improved as well so it ended up much cleaner looking as well 🙂

I have no idea where I originally found the pattern for this, but I loaded it into This step took FOREVER but I think it helped me understand the pattern a little better and made the actual weaving faster and easier so totally worth it.

Pattern on Twisted Threads Original Source

Version One

The decision to go with 2 shades of red didn’t turn out as well as I’d like. This pattern is pretty busy and I think the 2 colors are just distracting and take away from the pattern itself.

Also I wasn’t packing it down at much as I could be so the pattern is pretty elongated.

Version 2 (final)
