This weaving kit includes all yarns needed to weave these Flower Garden Hot Pads that were designed by Malynda Allen for Schacht Spindle Co.

Weave these sweet hot pads in overshot patterned doubleweave.  These beautiful patterns with a plain weave surface are woven on a four-shaft loom with 3/2 Perle Cottons.

The doubleweave creates two layers of fabric, so these hot pads are naturally thick enough to protect your hands and surfaces from pans straight from the oven or stove.

Weave Structure:  overshot patterned doubleweave

Yarns:  3/2 perle cotton in one color along with natural

Equipment Needed:  Wolf Pup LT or any 4-shaft loom; 10″ weaving width; 12 dent reed; two shuttles and bobbins, sewing needle and thread to match the yarn; sewing machine (optional but recommended)

Finished size: 6 hot pads, 7-1/2" x 7-1/2" each

Instructions Needed:  Get this free pattern download, compliments of Schacht Spindle Co.

Question Follow Up

Good question! That is exactly what is supposed to happen. At pick 15 the two layers intertwine to begin creating the pattern. In this case, the doubleweave fabric doesn’t create two separate pieces of fabric, but instead creates a thick fabric with two distinct sides (one light and one dark). The first 14 picks are designed to create an opening so that you can fold them in and secure the ends. The rest of the fabric stays as one piece to create thick fabric that’s perfect for hot pads.

It doesn’t work

I ordered the Flower Garden Hot Pad project with the draft from Schacht. I can’t get the double weave to work. The first 14 pics create a two layer cloth with openings on the sides as expected. Pic 15 is where the double weave stops. The cloth becomes interlaced. I have spent 5 days taking this project apart and starting again with the same result. What am I doing wrong?
