Weaving Diagram D
(Pack A)    Cards 3 thru 6, 13 thru 16 rotates 4 quarter turns forward then 4 quarter turns backward
(Pack B)    Cards 1&2, 7 thru 12, 17&18 rotates one direction only

This design uses what we have learned. Where the weave is to be a straight line, card threading alternates S/Z threading. Where the design will have diagonals the cards are threaded to give a smother design. Another difference is the Weaving Diagram. The cards are divided into two packs. Another row is added to the top of the Weaving Diagram and indicates which pack the card is in. Pack B is slid forwards of Pack A enough to be able to turn it separately. Pack A is turned in the normal warp twined weave method. Pack B is turned only in one direction. The warp will build up twist on the far side of Pack B and you will have to eventually reverse the direction the cards are being turned to undo this twist. Note that the cords created by Pack B look cleaner and the selvage (edges of the piece) is smoother.
