This is one of the more elaborate darning patterns. It makes a more solid filling and takes rather longer to work than some of the others. Many pleasing variations may be formed with darning stitches, where the background weft or warp threads are utilised to form the pattern. Damask Darning. Materials may be repaired by a linen, twill, or damask darn, in which case the weft threads have to be put in first by the worker before the pattern can be woven. Work Fig. C by lifting two weft threads in descending rows and passing over seven after working six rows the pattern is changed by the two weft threads to
