Hi, this is the nearest I can get to the original. I have no intention of making any more other than for my own Optimus eleventy ones, but in true CCS tradition I am happy to describe how to make one. You can either weave one yourself or the easy way is to persuade your wife/partner to weave one for you. I tried the easy way, but it didn't work! As mentioned previously, it is a PITA. My wife, who has been a weaver since her childhood and a textile teacher for many years, tells me there is no easy way to do this unless you have access to an industrial loom! However, this is how the one in the photo above was made. It was made on a simple loom with no heddle, so you have to weave each thread using a hand shuttle. There are 64 warps threads, made from 1mm cotton yarn. The first and last 4 warps are double so the weave at the edges is twice as narrow. The first 6 woven rows are made with 1mm cotton yarn, normal simple weave. The next 8 rows are with 2/3 mm cotton, simple weave. Then the next 30/35 rows are with 2/3mm cotton using gauze (sometimes called leno) weave, where two adjacent warps threads are twisted over each other and the weft passes through and is trapped between the twists. (This is the PITA bit). The actual number of rows will depend on how the row spacing works out, bearing in mind that you want the rag to be about 8 inches square when finished. This gauze weave stops the rag/wiper from fraying afterwards. Then the finishing rows are like the start in reverse with 8 rows normal weave with the 2/3mm cotton, and 6 rows with the thin cotton. I think these start and finish rows are just to stabilize the piece and to help to keep it flat when weaving the twisty bits in the middle. My next project is to weave an anorak!
