Catalogne - Installment #1

Here is the original pattern page that I made the translations from.  

Diagram A

Diagram B

My translation follows. 

Germine Galerneau ,
Ministry of Agriculture

Diagram A represents Tie Up at the top. Tie one treadle to shafts 2 and 4 and another treadle to shafts 1 and 3. 
The lower portion displays the Treadling . Starting with the treadle tied to shafts 1 and 3, alternate the two treadle throughout.  

Diagram B is the Threading. Using four shafts and working from left to right you will thread heddles in shafts 1, then 2, then 3 and then 4; and repeat this sequence across the desired width of your warp.

Dent: 10 dents per inch and two threads per dent.  
Warp: natural colour 2/16 cotton and blue 2/16 cotton. 
Weft: white rag strips and blue rag strips. 
Natural 2/16 cotton and blue 2/8 cotton. 

Sequence of Weaving :
A) 6 picks natural 2/16 cotton 
4 picks white rags
Repeat above two lines (A) 6 times. 

B) 6 picks natural 2/16 cotton

C) 6 picks blue 2/8 cotton
4 picks blue rags
Repeat above two lines (C) 5 times. 

D) 6 picks blue 2/8 cotton. 

Warp Sequence:
72 threads natural. This is the 1st part. 
Second part is the next five lines. 
16 blue threads
16 natural threads
56 blue threads
16 natural threads
16 blue threads. 
A total of 120 threads. 
Warping:  1st part is 72 threads. The second part is 129 threads and repeat as many times as wanted for the width you want; then end wih 72 threads of the 1st part again.
