With these placemats, not only do you get pretty cotton table toppers, but you have the benefit of weaving something close to a sampler. While the design has a straightforward threading sequence, variety in the treadling and the color-and-weave effect gives you a patchwork of different 4-harness patterns. The yarn is 4/2 cotton sett at 15 epi, for an absorbent fabric with some heft. The kit makes four placemats, each 17.25" x 12.75". They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- 20" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 10- or 15-dent reed
- 2 boat shuttles and 4 bobbins
Our towels use 4/2 Cotton in Natural, Lavender, and Juniper. If you would like your placemats to be in these colors, simply order the kit above.
