    Click here for free draft.

    These placemats are a great way to use up odds and ends of coned cotton yarns that have been cluttering your shelves.  The warp and one of the two wefts is 5/2 Valley Cotton in two contrasting colors.  There are two wefts:  the first is one of the two warp colors; the second, heavy weft is multiple ends of a variety of colors and weights of cotton yarns, both mercerized and unmercerized, in sizes from 5/2 to 10/2.  This is a great way to use up yarns left from previous projects.

    Warp Yarn:  5/2 Valley Cotton in 2 contrasting colors, or yarn from your stash from 5/2 to 8/2 size.  4 yards or more, depending on how many mats you want.
    Total warp ends:  165 
    Width:  On-loom 13 ¾”;  Finished approx. 12 ½”
    Sett:  12 epi in a 12-dent reed
    Thread:  Straight draw:  1, 2, 3, 4 
    Tie-up: Plain Weave 

    Weft Yarn:
    Heavy yarn -
    Odds and ends:  wind at least 10 ends and up to 20 ends of leftover cotton yarns in sizes from 5/2 to 10/2, mercerized or not, together.  Blend mostly colors you like that seem to combine well, but don’t hesitate to include a few colors you don’t like and want to get rid of!
    Light yarn - Use one of the colors you used in the warp as your alternate tabby pick.
