Text for the Krokbragd weaving

Have been trying to post about the Krokbragd weaving and seem to get debugging messages. If anyone knows anything about getting rid of those let me Know please!!! I tried to edit the Krokbragd weaving entry and it kept coming up. So since this is working I will do it here. The 1st pix is of the modification I made to the two heddle loom that I have so that I could do the Krokbragd. I tied on a rigid heddle that I had that was for a backstrap loom. It has a much wider spacing of the holes and spaces than called for so I had to change the threading in the reed to 2 threads skip a dent and 2 threads across. So it comes out 6-6 1/2 inches rather than the 4-4 1/2 inches it is supposed to be. So I also added an extra repeat in the middle of the first mat to make it a bit longer to keep it a little bit squarer. This worked great and I really zipped along with it yesterday. And finished the first one. The second pix is of the magazine's pix of the finished coasters with my finished first one! The mag pix shows that pattern in the upper left hand corner of the pix.
