No matter how accurate the digital simulation, nothing beats weaving an actual sample blanket of weave structures with actual yarn. Woven today: my new double twill jacquard sample sample blanket with two warps & three wefts. Refer to page 130, Chapter 8 of The Woven Pixel (see sidebar).
These are the same weaves as the ones I used on the dobby sample, with one exception; the layers are tied together at intervals in this one, and are completely separate in the dobby version. A nice palette of 36 colors. Click to enlarge.
A few wrinkles to iron out: a better selvedge weave, and perhaps addition of floating selvedges, much as I hate them.
