Well-known pattern from the Birka find – in the early Middle Ages an important trading center (today’s Sweden). The woolen three-color band – the blue motif on the yellow background with the blue-red edges – was woven on 20 cards. It is 107cm long and 2,5cm wide.
A few years ago I wove this pattern in cotton and in other colors. This one is still used by us today.
The recently published band Double tangle (here) is based on the same principal.
