Master Weaver–Hopscotch Runners


These Hopscotch Table Runners are the first runners in our Master Weaver Series.  Designed by Master Weaver, Deb Essen, these runners use 4 colors of Tubular Spectrum to make table runners reminiscent of hopscotch pattern and spring flowers in front of Deb’s Grandmother’s house.  The summer and winter pattern has a different look on the front and back. It’s a fun, quick project to warp up and weave.
