Fun weaving!

I loved these napkins! They are easy to weave and ended up going to a good friend as a birthday gift. I did think that they are far too small to use as a dinner napkin so I made them larger than the pattern indicated.

These are beautiful

This is a great kit. I am still weaving these napkins and they are coming out beautiful. The colors are wonderful and the cotton/linen fiber has a great feel. I can't wait to set the table with my new napkins. A good project for someone with limited experience.

Not great for a new-ish weaver

This is a review for the yarn. I am a new-ish weaver, working on a RHL, I found the yarn split easily, especially when slaying the heddle. Ultimately, with the split yarn and keeping adequate tension across the warp, I had 2 broken warp threads. The Upside, I am now comfortable repairing a broken warp thread.

In the UK!

It was great to be able to source the yarn for these napkins in the UK!

Running stitch

Tried this pattern for napkins, made them larger, love the design, easy to do & very effective. Looking forward to trying towels using same design. Would also work for place mats & even scarves
