Tabula Rasa Table Runner Pattern by Alice Schlein
This 8-shaft pattern by Alice Schlein produces a beautiful and interesting fabric. Please note that this 8-shaft draft requires a table or dobby loom as it would require 18 treadles with a tie-up!
The pattern is written to produce two runners on the same warp, with instructions for modifying the length to easily produce different length runners.
The pattern includes complete written instructions as well as WIF files for the complete runner, a single repeat and a section assembly draft for TempoWeave users who want to easily generate different size drafta.
