Detailed Description

Set the table for your outdoor (or indoor!) party with a set of colorful doubleweave placemats and matching plain weave napkins. The placemats are woven with a solid-color layer and a multicolored layer. Exchange the layers and you get fun blocks of contrasting color. It sounds complicated but the treadling sequence is easy and you use only one color of weft. The only tricky aspect is the tie-up. If you have just six treadles, you will need to change the tie-up from time to time as you weave. If you have ten treadles, you can set it up and weave without interruption. The placemats are reversible, so you can flip some or all for a different look. The coordinating napkins have a multicolor warp and are woven with a single color of weft in easy plain weave. The yarn for this project is 8/4 Carpet Warp, made of 100% unmercerized cotton. The kit makes six hemmed placemats with finished dimensions of 17.5" x 11.5" and six hemmed napkins measuring 15.5" square. They are machine washable and dryable.

You will need:

  • 18 weaving width
  • 4 harnesses
  • 15 dent reed
  • 392 heddles
  • boat shuttle and 2 bobbins

We wove our set using 8/4 Carpet Warp main color 14 White with accents of 63 Orange, 58 Grass, 41 Moody Blue, 11 Gold, 70 Dubonnet, and 42 Velvet. Unfortunately, colors 63 Orange and 70 Dubonnet are not corrently available from the manufacturer so we are substituting 22 Burnt Orange and 38 Cranberry. This "as shown" combination is shown in the photo above. If you would like this combination, including the substitutions, simply order the kit above. If you would like to pick your own colors, please visit our 8/4 Carpet Warp page to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us in the box above which seven colors of Carpet Warp you would like. Be sure to specify which is the main color.
