Christmas Overshot Runner & Ornaments
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Christmas Overshot Runner & Ornaments that were designed by Anne Sneary for Handwoven, Sept/Oct, pages 73 and 93.
Decorate your holiday table, sideboard or dresser with this festive overshot table runner. Warp stripes and weft bands coordinate with the threading and treadling blocks so that the overshot elements are centered on blocks of red, green and a mixture of the two colors.
Then with the leftover fabric create 10-12 stuffed holiday ornaments to hang on the tree, in a doorway with a sprig of mistletoe or adorn a holiday gift.
Weave structure: Overshot
Yarns: We've substituted elegant Bambu 7 for the silk called for in the instructions with outstanding results. Mercerized 10/2 Perle Cotton is used for the weft and tabby.
Equipment: 4 shaft loom; 16" weaving width; 10 dent reed at 20 epi
Instructions needed: Handwoven September/October 1995 from Long Thread Media.
