A Beautiful,Tlingit Ravenstail in Chilkat Split-U

June 10th, 2013 by Clarissa

Using two shades of blue weft, this Ravenstail zig-zag pattern is a nice inspiration for weaving “water” in Clarissa’s next Chilkat robe called ‘Resilience”

In each Chilkat robe I’ve woven, I have always played around with trying something new, like weaving “electric eyes” or “making waves” – in the robe I am presently weaving, I wove the above in a “split-u” shape.  I’ve woven this before, but in a different color combination and in a different shape – this particular color combination is an inspiration for future weavings.  I really like the colors.
