Learn a fantastic new way to create unusual and colorful pickup designs !!
The 3-color pickup technique comes from an older style of pattern woven in a small province of Lithuania.
It is said that only 3% of the sashes were done using this technique as “only the rare weaver had the skill to weave them”. To my knowledge, no one has written a detailed description of this technique for weavers to follow. It is not discussed in any of the current publications on band weaving.

By examining photos of a collection of sashes, I was able to “read” the textiles in the photos, decipher the threading and learn the technique for myself. I was very excited when I discovered it, as it opened up a whole new world of possibilities for weaving more interesting and colorful patterns and it is my hope that you will be just as excited to learn it.

It is my belief that if you can weave the "speckled" pickup, you can weave this one. All of your favorite pattern drafts from that technique can be used with this one, only with more colors!

The 15-page tutorial includes threading charts for two variations, written descriptions, photos of various bands woven in this technique and an exclusive video so that you can see and understand the process more clearly.

This is a digital document (PDF) which you will be able to download directly from Etsy upon purchase.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are newer bandweaver, this tutorial will not make you happy. It is an advanced technique which absolutely requires that you have a working understanding of how to weave the more common pickup technique which is alternately known as: basketweave, supplementary warp, speckled, Baltic, European, Latvian, Scandinavian or Sami pickup.
Understanding how to create pickup patterns in one color at a time is a foundation for understanding how to create patterns using the 3-color pickup method.
THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE ABOUT TECHNIQUE AND INCLUDE THREADING CHARTS FOR WARPING THE LOOM, HOWEVER, NO CHARTS FOR SPECIFIC DESIGN MOTIFS ARE INCLUDED.
