Homeward Bound - Table Runner and Placemat Set - Pattern Download Weaving Pattern
Author: Emily Werner
Block Island is a lovely blend of natural fibers with a hint of sheen and a subtle interplay of shades within each thread. The cotton content provides absorbency, the linen/flax provides body and the rayon captures light in its sheen. It is easy to work with and the resulting fabric is sophisticated and with a somewhat homespun look. Using different colors for each mat's hem makes each one unique. Weave either 4 placemats and a matching table runner, or 6 placemats if you prefer. You will need a one pound cone of the main color and one mini cone each of the 4 contrasting colors.
