Network Drafting on 8 Shafts

Visit the fuzzy images possible when a design line is networked. Learn to telescope or digitize a design line to reduce it to the number of shafts available for use. Explore the initials that hold the structural information to establish a network grid, network the line, and use it as is or explore ways to combine it with twills, both in the threading and treadling. It is often thought to be best done on greater than 8 shafts, but this need not be the case.
