Tying the Cross
To help keep the warp yarns in their proper order, the yarns are wound in a cross pattern.
The cross can be placed at the front of the warp, at the back of the warp or in both locations.
It is important to wind the warp yarns with a steady and even tension.
Many weavers tie off groups of yarns to help count the number of warp threads wound.
After the required number of warp yarns have been wound, the cross is tied in 4 places.
This will preserve the warp thread order needed to thread the loom.
