For those of you who asked, I am including here the full draft and instructions for weaving the Swedish Lace Towels.
I wanted to use traditional Swedish Lace to the fullest on four shafts, so I worked out a profile draft that would include both a table, and the flower motif. I also knew that I wanted a tea towel that would be close to 20 inches in the reed. The thread I chose was 2.10 mercerized cotton from UKI in bleached white. The profile draft I came up with is:
To determine the threading, Use the Block A thread by thread to replace every A on the threading portion of the profile draft and the Block B thread by thread to replace every B on the threading portion of the profile draft.
The last thread, shown in yellow in each block substitution is called the incidental thread. The incidental is used only when Block A is followed by another Block A, or Block B is followed by another Block B. Obviously, if Block A is followed by Block B, the incidental does not need to be used, because Block B starts on shaft 4, and when Block B is followed by Block A, the incidental does not need to be used, because Block A starts on shaft 1.
The first and last block in the profile is marked PW for Plain Weave, and is threaded on shafts 1 and 4.
The first portion of the thread by thread draft is shown below.
Treadle as drawn in according to the profile draft, substituting plain weave, Block A and Block B as shown below for the first part of the treadling. As with the threading, use incidentals when Block A is followed by another Block A, or Block B is followed by another Block B:
