RH Rustic
                Placemats Too
Pattern:  Plain Weave

  Sakura Cotton (by Estelle Yarns) for weft; Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Ultrasoft for warp
Method:  Weaving
Completed:  December 10, 2013.

This was a second warp to repeat a project on my rigid heddle loom (Schacht Flip, 15"; used 8 dent reed, 112 ends) -- four more placemats!.  The Sakura Cotton is a very slow changing variegated yarn, so I made sure to wind/rewind the yarn on the shuttle so that cut ends would line up (and colours would continue evenly).  Used about 4 balls of the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, and about 2/3 of one skein of the Sakura Cotton.   

Wove the placemats to 18", left about 1" between placemats.  Sewed down the ends before washing.  After washing -- placemats measure 11.5" x 14.5".
