This is my absolute pride and joy right now. The band is 45" with twist finished fringe. It's made of three colors of crochet cotton: blue, green, yellow. The warp is that of a basket weave. The pickup pattern is a Celtic braid.
I honestly thought with the cold dry weather, my fingers were going to fall off while working on this. If I do this pattern again, I'm going to add one more row of yellow on one side of the knotwork, and I'm going to use the right color for the edge border (oops).
This pattern I designed on my double heddle graph paper ( [link] ) to look like a finger woven piece. (Similar to [link] ) The way it looks is the "old" or old fashioned part. The way I'm weaving it, and that it's a new pattern for me, is the "new" part.
Edit: New photo of the finished piece showing the (too short in my opinion) fringe.
The warp threads are what you see and are Red Heart brand yarn. The weft threads that go back and forth (you don't see much, except in spots on the back) are some leftover Rayon that was on the shuttle from a previous weaving. Weaving with a thinner weft thread makes it a much tighter weave than my other double heddled patterns, by nearly 16% more passes per length.
While cutting asparagus and searching out some morels in yard this morning, I nearly stepped on this ! I ran back for the camera. No zoom used. I was 2 feet away (briefly). I could've picked it up and brought it in the house lol. It was only a curled mass measuring about 2 feet. Next year at this time it will be strong, solid and about the size of a pony. I'm sure the mommy who said "Stay right here until I come back", will return soon.
[evening update] The baby is now gone. I assume that mom came back to retrieve it and they went on their way. and I saw no recent road accidents within a mile either way.
 It was back the next day, about 20 feet from this spot. Having the camera this time, I got very close and took a couple more pictures. Then I said "Happy Birthday" and it got up and ran about 10 feet, wavered, stumbled and ran off to where I could see mom in the distance. Awww
(I wish my kid's listened this good. One would have asked "why" and the other would have got up and left as soon as I was out of sight)
