I knocked this one up tonight.
Barra don't have much in the way of colour, so it's hard to do them justice.

I decided to do a silhouette as well.
Enjoy Smiley

Weave before epoxy (rotated so you see how it'll look holding the rod)

After epoxy

I let myself down big time on this one by not leaving enough thread hanging out at the start of the weave. Being metalic, it just fell apart when I tried to tighten it Sad
I also had problems with the mettalic thread unraveling when I tightened.
This weave will look heaps better when tightened properly.

I've modified the attached pattern to make it look better around a couple of the fins.

cheers,
Owen

For those that like to work direct from the pattern, you can print it across many pages and stick them to a cork board or similar.  Put it on an easel with a T square and you're away.

Personally I prefer a left list, but on multi-colour weave I find I use both in conjunction with each other.
