Gradient Placemats will add zing to your table. The placemats are woven with 3/2 Tubular Spectrum™ mercerized cotton yarn. With four 4 oz cones of each color, you can weave 3 coordinating placemats. We have included instructions for either shaft looms or rigid heddle looms. Woven in plain weave to take advantage of the gorgeous gradient pattern in the warp.
These are the same colorways from the Discover Gradients class. If you want to make up your own colorways, you can choose any of the sets of instructions and use your own colors. The gradient draft needs to have contrasting colors to show off the gradients in the warp.
If you don’t have the colors from the original colorways, we still have some available. Click here.
These are the Original Colorways from the Discover Gradient’s Weave-along:
Moroccan Sunrise Colorway
If you enjoy warm Reds, Golds, and rich Browns you will love this colorway. We picked 4 colors: 10 Yellow Red, 10 Red, Burnt Umber and Gold to give a sense of rich tones of Morocco. Can you smell the cardamom and cinnamon on the morning air?
Adriatic Sea Colorway
If cool Blues and Greens are more pleasing to you this may be your favorite colorway! We picked 4 colors: 10 Green, Sea Green, Teal and Cobalt to give the feeling of this lovely forest lined sea. Can you smell the pine trees along the shore?
Treasure of Tyre Colorway
We all love purple. The 4 colors of this colorway: 5 Purple, Verbena, Periwinkle and 5 Blue evoke the juxtaposition of ancient dyes of Tyre and the modern city in Lebanon. Can you smell the salty pools where the murex snails kept their hidden treasure?
