Product Details

Barbara Elkins designed Valley Yarns Shadow Weave Table Runner based on a significantly modified shadow weave draft in Strickler. She added pattern units to make it wider and chose colors that enhance the oriental rug on the floor. Yours could be the same colors or use contrasting colors that work for you. The threading is rather complex, but the treadling is just a point twill. As long as you remember to alternate colors, weaving is fast and easy.
