This project is a study in varying texture and color. It is largely plain weave, but with a textured accent and 4 harness lace inset for interest. We started with a striped warp of Organic Cottolin sett at 20 epi, accented with the textured cotton/linen Irish Lace. For the placemats, we mimicked the warp sequence in the weft, which created a grid of color and texture with inset lace motifs in some of the blocks. For the napkins, we used a central block of a single color weft and created long bands of lace. Two napkins are primarily in one color, two in the other. All are finished with a hemmed edge. The styles and colors coordinate beautifully and give some variety to your table (and your weaving experience.) The kit makes four placemats with finished dimensions of 19" x 14" and four napkins of 14" x 14". They can be machine washed and dried.
