Thread art "twill woven" pattern

Hi all,
I'm building a spinning rod using the Lamiglas Texalium tube as a handle.
I'd like to make a simple thread artwork (about 10 cm over the foregrip) to follow the pattern of the texalium tube (twill woven).
Can anyone help me by suggesting a simple scheme (2 colors) to follow or where can I find appropriate information on the net?

Thank you for your support

Marco,
You are asking for quite a bit! I certainly do not have any suggestions, but Maybe Rich Forhan has some “Magic Wand” recommendations.

What you have is just a pattern based on multiple axis. Very simple to do.

I’m assuming you want to mimic something like this?

I would do this as a multi-axis chevron wrapped in bands of thread. To get the best effect you’d need to do at least 8, but most likely more axis which would be a bit challenging to keep up with when wrapping - but you’re also likely to only be doing a couple colors and wrapping in bands. By wrapping in bands I mean wrapping multiple threads at a time - say 3-5.

If you’re going to get into the world of decorative wraps I’d recommend Billy Vivona’s book “Decorative Wraps” - covers the fundamentals and foundations and info / patterns for more complex wraps.

A chevron is the most basic - just crossing of threads on one direction down the blank. What wi make this a bit more complex is the need to space it so it “closes” - where he threads you’re wrapping meet ones you started earlier - and then doing this on a large number of axis around the blank.

I definitely also recommend you get or make a “butt alignment jig” and a circle template to mark your blank, and then use the spacing to mark your starting cross points.
