There is something about those traditional overshot patterns. They have a symmetry and proportion that never goes out of style. We chose one with a circular motif and doubled it up. The warp is French Linen sett at 18 epi and has an accent stripe on each side of the center panel. The tabby weft is the main warp color and the pattern weft is Harrisville Designs' Shetland. Finished measurements are 12.5" x 54.25". The runner can be hand washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- 15.25” weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 12 dent reed
- 271 heddles
- 2 boat shuttles and bobbins
We wove our runner using French Linen color 4094 Blue and 4276 Brick and Shetland color Midnight Blue.
