Color and Weave Runner by Deborah Jarchow
Whether for special occasions or every day, a beautiful table runner dresses up your kitchen or living room furnishings. This colorful and decorative runner will look lovely on any table in your home.
While learning how to make different variations of color and weave effect, you’ll also practice weaving with two shuttles. With five warp colors and four weft colors, this project may seem complex, but is an enjoyable plain weave design. It’s amazing and exciting to see the number of designs you will achieve by mixing colors in various combinations of warp and weft yarns.
There are two color choices available.
Harmony colors include Terra Cotta, Ecru, Camel, Taupe, and Cafe.
Peace colors include Denim, White, Jade, Taupe, and Cafe.
Choose your favorite or weave one of each!

Absolutely love it. The colors are awesome and I can’t wait to start it as soon as I get the project in hands done and out of the loom. I love getting my cotton/yarns and patterns from you. It comes fast and are of very good quality. Also Deborah is a great teacher and I love her stuff. Thank you
