Ran out of warp

I love this pattern. I made 4 placemats as a Christmas gift. However, I came up short of 4 on the first kit. For some reason, my mats were a bit longer than the pattern calls for, about 16” instead of 14”. I really struggled to get 11 ppi. So, if you make this, you want to be sure you pack the weft tight, or possibly lengthen the warp. I got a 2nd kit, so now have 4 placemats and a nice table runner! Warping is a bit challenging, but the weave is simple with a simple pick-up stick pattern that really pops when finished.
