Let the loom do all the work! Beautiful lace effects can be achieved by creating half heddles or doups and with the press of a treadle, or lift of a lever, threads magically cross themselves in the warp. This technique is possible on four shafts and with eight shafts the possibilities are even better! Learn how to create doups, thread for doup leno, and how to treadle some wonderful lace fabrics. Based on the lengthy article featured in the January/February 2019 issue of Heddlecraft Magazine.
