Summer Winter Placemats Pattern

Summer and Winter is a very versatile draft. This project uses 8/2 cotton yarn for making reversible placemats.

Treadling

I wove these placemats as a sampler, varying the treadling between Singles and Pairs.

Finishing

Each placemat was woven to a length of 18″ on the loom. Handfinishing was done on the loom using Hemstitch finish. Between each placemat, the warp was advanced 2 inches, to allow a fringe.

After weaving, I cut the warp from the loom, and put it through a wash and dry
cycle in my washer. After washing, I ironed the placemats and trimmed the fringes.

Variation: Chenille Towels

Instead of using 8/2 cotton for the weft, you can also try using cotton chenille. In this sample I wove 1450 ypp cotton chenille for the pattern shots of the draft alternating with 8/2 cotton for the tabby shots. I think that this combination would be nice for bath towels.
