All of the weaving structures used on four shafts can be expanded to more; sometimes it is just a matter of adding more blocks, but other times strategies must be found to delimit the resulting floats. We discuss two ways to expand our structures: one is to think of all of our shafts divided into front and back looms, each with its own threading and treadling; the other is to extend the threading of the weave and then find ways to anchor the floats. We discuss the various groups of weaves with these strategies. There are also structures, like satin, not possible on four shafts. An Appendix listing the most commonly used threading and treadling for the various structures concludes this monograph.
