Cafe Table Runner
A table runner that brings together the rustic texture of Duet Cotton/Linen and the classic elegance of Bronson lace. Order a kit.
As soon as I have a loom ready to tie up the draft, I’m so eager to put this on. A friend did the runner but I plan to make it into a scarf. I know it will soften with wash and wear. It’s just the best looking summer wear scarf I can imagine.
I chose to do this in Linen. My colorway was oatmeal and pale green. Gift for a friend. It worked up so well fast. Shorter length and no fringe.

Love it and working on it now!!
I wove this on my 4-shaft loom using Duet colors, Pearl, Sun, and Cerise. Warped with Pearl, with 2 stripes of Sun and Cerise on each side. Weft was Sun, with thin pics of Cerise. The pattern was clear and easy to follow. Duet is great to weave with, and I really enjoyed the project. My surprise was that the runner turned out to be much longer than I thought after wet finishing - 95 inches - when the pattern said it should be about 55 inches when finished. So-- either I made a big error when measuring the warp on warping board, or the length of the warp stated in the pattern is off. In the pattern it says to measure the warp at 120 inches. I wonder if that number was supposed to be 102 instead??
So, I think the runner will become an attractive wall hanging instead. (in the photo, it's double folded on the rack)
