Let's Dig Into Diagonals

For your first diagonal, it’s much easier if the two colors you use are the same kind of yarn. If one strand is thicker than the other, you’ll run into problems. Save that sort of creativity for later!


Here’s a diagram to show you the weave structure.

Weave 2 rows of color A.

Weave one row to the right, but turn back on the second warp end in from the right.

Repeat, turning back on the third warp end in from the right.

Keep weaving this pattern, returning on the next warp thread in from the right.
