$ 37.00 USD
Huck Lace Rigid Heddle Placemats Kit 1 includes:
- 1 cone of Duet in Cerise
- 1 cone of 8/4 Un-Mercerized Cotton in Yellow
- a printable PDF of the pattern
For this project, you need a rigid heddle loom at least 15" wide, a 12 or 12.5 dent heddle, 2 pick-up sticks, 1 boat shuttle and bobbin, or 1 stick shuttle
The colorful yarn was vibrant and wonderful to work with. It washed to a lovely softness. The Huck instructions were excellent, and led me to experiment with other pick up stick projects.
Pattern is well-written and easy to follow. The unmercerized cotton and Duet yarns work well together; both are good quality yarns. Loved the colors together! This pattern uses 2 pickup sticks to create the Huck lace pattern, so weaving is a little slower because of the pickup sticks. I didn't mind - I found doing all the steps meditative. But you do need to keep track of the steps of the pattern, and be sure to insert the pickup sticks correctly (my first placemat has some "unplanned design elements" to it...). I'll weave this project again, using different colors.
