Palm Springs Cocktail Carpets
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Palm Springs Cocktail Carpets that were designed by Jennifer E Kwong for Handwoven, March/April 2023, pages 35–37.
Jennifer's inspiration for these cute little mats came from the homes in Palm Springs, Ca. They capture the fun, frivolity, and lightness of mid-century-modern style. The clean lines, cheery colors and asymmetry of line structure are very pleasing to the eye.
