In the case of these twills, the diagonal effect is broken by transposition of the original order of the threads. This type of construction produces attractive designs. A number of methods can be adopted in the transposition of the regular twills. One of the commonly used methods is shown in figure
Natural INDIGO Dye – THE KING OF NATURAL DYES
As shown in the figure, the transposed twill is constructed in three stages. In figure A the repeat size of the design is shown. The design adopted here is a base twill of 3/3 transposed on a repeat of 2. The repeat size is 6 ¥ 6. In the figure B is shown the base marks that are made on repeat size of 2 ¥ 2, the squares of which are thickly lined. In the figure C is shown the design of the transposed twill where the 3/3 twill is transposed in the thickly lined squares.
