finnweave sample by backstrap

This is a sample I wove on my backstrap loom using a tutorial by David Xenakis from a 1982 issue of  the Prairie Wool Companion. I am hoping to learn and be competent enough at this technique so that I can chart and reproduce double weave designs woven by the Huichol people of Mexico as well as to reproduce some of the designs I have on pre columbian textile fragments of old Peru.
