Here is an easy introduction to woven lace! These 2-block coasters have simple repeat and even though the warp and weft are at 20 ends per inch, these little square weave up quickly. As a bonus, you'll also learn to hemstitch the edges for a pretty finished edge. We used 8/2 Cottolin for these coasters because it is absorbent but very lightweight. The kit makes six hemstitched coasters with finished dimensions of 6" x 6.25". They can be hand or machine washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- 7" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 10-dent reed
- 140 heddles
- 1 boat shuttle and bobbin
- tapestry needle for hemstitching
We used 8/2 Cottolin color #5067 Periwinkle. If you would like this color, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own color, please see our 8/2 Cottolin page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your color selection in the box above.
