Whig Rose

Continuing with overshot, I wove two table runners (or maybe more accurately, one loooooong runner, and one table square/topper) in the Whig Rose design from A Handweaver’s Pattern Book by Marguerite Porter Davison.

I used Venne organic 2/16 cotton in cream for the warp and tabby weft.  2/8 organic cotton in Brick Red was used for the pattern weft in the red runner, and a 2/8 mercerized cotton that shall remain nameless was used for the green one.  The organic cotton is a high quality cotton with great twist and is wonderful to weave with.

At 54.5″ long, the red runner would suit a long harvest table (which must of been what I was thinking, hence its long length), it would look great as the centrepiece of a holiday table setting.  The green one is 20.5″ long and would make a great table square for the centre of a smaller table.
