Ikat – Page 5: Checking for Twists

Place your fingers between twining at the cross and slide it down through the warp. This will tell you if there are twists. Lift the end dowel and untwist until the knots that tie the twinings are on the same side and there are no twists. You are now ready to make your first fold. Illustration shows one person doing the folding.
