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.

Weave Structure: plain weave & huck lace

Yarns: 8/4 Cotton in Ivory, Dark Navy and Gold.

Note: We have made similar substitutions for the Maurice Brassard 8/4 cotton yarns from the original pattern.  

Equipment needed: 3-shaft Loom; 6” weaving width; 12 dent reed; 1 shuttle; 2 bobbins

Finished Dimensions: six cocktail carpets 5" × 6" including fringe.

Instructions needed:  Handwoven March/April 2023 available from Long Thread Media.

This kit includes all yarns needed to weave these cocktail carpets.  The pattern can be found in the Handwoven magazine noted above.  You will need to purchase this magazine if you don't already own a copy.
