Instruction sheet for patterns for weaving using Branson Looms. Courtesy of Osborne Library, American Textile History Museum. Three patterns for weaving. Each pattern is a set of four columns with four dots evenly spaced along the length of the column. Each column has two small, solid white dots and two larger Os. The positioning of these small white dots and larger Os indicate the pattern to be woven. Each of the three patterns appears to be labelled, but the labels are indecipherable. The upper half of the sheet contains all three patterns. The lower half of the sheet shows a drawing of a semi-automatic loom and the text “J. L. Branson Proprietor and Manufacturer No. 131 West Fifth Street Cincinnati, Ohio.”
