Iris in Spring Placemats pattern
Item Number: WP-YB-501-

Detailed Description

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 Ad Astra 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:

  • 1 cone each of 3 colors 4/2 Cotton
  • small amount of 8/2 or 10/2 cotton for the hem
  • 20" weaving width
  • 4 harnesses
  • 10- or 15-dent reed
  • 2 boat shuttles and 4 bobbins

Our towels use Ad Astra in 011 Natural, 46 Wisteria, and 33 Grassland.
