Bounce Back Rug

Designed by Miriam Vergara

This rug is woven with three different structures: Plain Weave, Doubleweave, and Leno. The Plain Weave sections alternate picks of Duet and Mallo to weave a marled texture, while the Doubleweave sections create two distinct layers—one entirely weft-faced, and another with Leno accents. This piece is intended to be used as a decorative rug on the floor of your home, but can also be placed on a table, or hung on the wall. Order a kit.

Bounce-Back rug as table runner

Fun and fast project, but upon completion, these fibers seems a bit flimsy for a rug. It will make an awesome table-topper, however. And, for what it's worth, if done as directed in the pattern, you don't need two cones of Duet, one is more than enough. I wove the project as written plus a 4" sample (to get the hang of the Leno section), and still had fiber left on the first cone. ALSO, not sure why the draft was written as a skeleton tie-up, when it can be done as a draw-down still only using 6 treadles and not requiring double-pedaling (I only know this because I have a counter-marche loom and HAD to re-write the tie-up). It's a really fun project to weave and could easily be made narrower and longer for that beautiful table-runner for which it is more suited.
