Lovely Day Rep Weave Placemats - Download Weaving Pattern - Free with yarn purchase
Author: Halcyon Blake & Linda Healy
Pull up a chair to these lovely table settings! Woven cotton placemats in a 2-block, 4-shaft rep weave. A wonderful project for learning about rep weave, in which closely spaced warps are woven in plain weave with alternating thick and thin wefts. This weave structure allows you to play with blocks of color.
Lovely Day rep weave placemats show off the color block interactions in high sheen 5/2 Pearl Cotton, along with a heavier cotton "filler" yarn. Use a main background color (MC) and four harmonious colors (A B C D) in the tightly sett warp (40 EPI).
