Valley Yarns Welcome to the Table Mat is a draft for classy and elegant placemats that combine several different rigid heddle techniques for a very striking look. The central diamond is created with clasped weft, and the borders feature a row of leno lace. It’s fun to weave and a great way to take plain weave to new heights.
