I’m trying the weft faced rugs from season three using some bulky chenille that I use for Squishy bathroom rugs. Normally in PW I use 12 EPI, but that didn’t work for weft faced designs with the columns and other designed you created.
So i reduced it to 6EPI, 4 EPI and even 3 EPI so that i can make these rugs with pretty boarder.
The grey sample is 4 EPI and the teal on the loom was re-slayed to 3EPI.
It’s hard to give you an answer, Heidi. Did you hemstitch your samples to give you a solid base to work from? I would just weave larger samples, trying different setts, hemstitch, cut off resley a different sett and try again until you get something you are happy with. I would think that your sett needs to have a higher epi to hold things together. Jane used a 12/4 linen on her samples – what are you using with yours?
I switched to bulky weight yarn and 8EPI and my sample is done!!!
Thanks for the great lesson. I also found that a skeleton tie-up was the easiest to keep track of and figure out what to lift. So much simpler than the many tradable combinations.
THANKS AGAIN — perhaps one day I’ll invest in lots of wool for a rug.
