I made these small (62 x 88 cm) [24.5" x 35"], weft faced rugs on a 4 harness floor loom using #6 cotton seine twine warp at 6 ends per inch, and a variety of wool and wool blend yarns in the weft. It was a great use of some of the coarse yarns that I have acquired over the past few years. The pattern of the more complex one was inspired by a rug that friends have had on their floor for many years. The primary challenge was dealing with the edges, and aiming for consistency in both pattern and tension along the selvedges. I now know what I should have done to achieve that!
My plan is to warp the loom for 3 more small rugs, in a variety of colours and patterns. I am making these rugs for family, and as my technique improves, I hope to make some for friends. Many thanks my weaving mentors, Jean and Janice. You have both shown me there are no limits in the world of weaving.
