I would love to try this in cotton/linen for placemats. Any suggestions on the size warp and weft yarn to use?April 12, 2019 at 9:23 pm #71797
When “what if?” Strikes it is a beautiful thing. Thank you.April 12, 2019 at 1:35 pm #71783
No worries Gabi! It’s always good to have that extra tid bit of info for others as well, glad it worked out 🙂April 12, 2019 at 12:13 pm #71768
Help! I cannot print page two of the pdf’s. It doesn’t fit on one page. It just happens to be a very important page! How did you do it?
Just ignore this! DH advised to use the “fit to page”- option on the printer. Sorry!!!!!

Hi Sharon – this is an adapted technique, used when you have floating selvedges. The selvedge warp threads do not go through your heddles and therefore don’t get caught as you weave. Jane uses this technique whenever she uses floating selvedges to neatly catch those threads and secure them to the cloth.April 12, 2019 at 5:42 am #71732
Thanks for the comments everyone! Warp was 4/8 cotton and the weft was what ever thickish left over yarn bits (wool, cotton, tencel, bamboo etc) I had in my stash. They ended up being about 5″ by 5″. I had set up my Jane table loom and worked away on them over a 4 month period – not dedicated enough to do one a day. 😉 There was absolutely no advance planning done – just did a pattern for a few rows until I decided to make a change on the fly. This truly was a stream of consciousness experiment – the old “I wonder what will happen if I do this” . 🙂April 11, 2019 at 11:45 pm #71711
I love the mug rugs.!April 11, 2019 at 3:19 pm #71676
I am carefully watching the first ‘at the loom’ segment and notice that ‘jump the bump’ and ‘dive the dip’ don’t seem to be being used here. The shuttle is exiting UNDER the floating selvedge and then the next weft pick is going OVER the previous yarn. The selvedges look great so is this an adapted technique?
Full disclosure: I was paying very close attention because I’ve been doing some other two shuttle weaves (crackle and overshot) and have had issues with the weft pulling in from the outermost edge of the fabric no matter whether I go under or over.April 11, 2019 at 11:43 am #71635
They are Wonderful ! So what did you use for warp and weft? how wide are they? Great way to play with patternsApril 11, 2019 at 11:04 am #71621
Oh my Susan! Those are wonderful! So many variations, colours and patterns 🙂April 11, 2019 at 10:37 am #71594
What a brilliant idea, Susan! Yours are fabulous. I’ll have to follow a suggestion of Jane’s and put a warp on my table loom and weave a mug rug or mini carpet a day!April 11, 2019 at 9:56 am #71577
This is so much fun to do. After the on-site course at Jane’s last year I went home and set up a long warp and made 40 little mug rugs – each one different – to practice with various yarns and patterns.
