Bloom Table Squares

Designed by Amanda Rataj

These small table squares are a simple project designed to familiarize you with the Overshot technique through a straightforward, short threading sequence. Since there is only one large motif, sections are easy to thread, and the small size makes the project satisfyingly quick to make. Order a kit.

Beautiful and easily modifiable

I am using the pattern as a starting point to make a wider and longer table runner. It's coming out really well! Thank you for such clear instructions, a draft that is easy to read and use, and a beautiful pattern! For my piece, I am using 8/2 cottolin for the warp and tabby weft and 8/4 cotton for the pattern weft, sett at 20 epi. The photo is my table runner on the loom.

Delightful pattern

I am not a very experienced weaver and I love overshot. This is a well written pattern with enough challenge to make it a good learning experience, but once you have it all set up and begin to weave, it goes fast and the resulting mats are beautiful. I used different weft colors in each and will give them as gifts. The photo is of some sampling I did plus the beginning of the first mat.

Cute!

I expanded her pattern for my cushion. I love to touch the combination of Beam & Duet, but my first attemption was failed. I couldn't pack the pattern shots.
So, I changed warp to cottolin from my stash. Thank you Amanda & gistYARN for this cute pattern.
Oh, now I found one mistake after washing.....

Sweet little project

Great reintroduction to overshot. It’s been 40 years or so. Love the colors.

Blooming overshot

I have not woven an overshot pattern in many years, but this pattern was too tempting. I loved weaving it. I had forgotten how tedious the threading could be! Cussing was involved. But I prevailed. Mine did not square up as perfectly I think due to my jack loom, but maybe will after it comes off the loom. Regardless, it doesn't bother me one bit. I am a fan Amanda!
