July – Anglo-Saxon belt

This pattern is inspired by a tablet woven belt found in Cambridge and dated for 6 or 7th c. The original belt might have been from linen and was found attached to bronze plates. My reconstruction uses the diamond motif from the Cambridge band but is simplified to 4 forward – 4 backward card movement scheme. A bit boring to make but looks nice to the eye.
