Canvas Weave Napkins

Following along with the Jane Stafford Online Guild, I have worked through Episode 5.2 Canvas Weave.  I rearranged the draft to weave napkins instead of a sampler.  Canvas weave is a fun and easy one shuttle weave.  Jane gave us lots to think about, and different ways to create canvas lace.  For the napkins, I choose two colours of 2.8 cotton:  natural and flax.  I put the canvas lace in the centre, and smaller amounts of canvas towards the outer edges, creating a nine-patch square when woven as drawn in.  Throughout the episode, Jane Stafford gave us many variations, so we went beyond the simple Tromp-as-writ.  I wove 14 napkins in total.  Here are my four favourites.

I have been steadily weaving since 1980. I enjoy sharing and passing on my learning.
