Gist Yarn Birch Bark Runner Pattern


Designed by Jennifer E. Kwong

This textured table runner is woven in plain weave with a supplementary weft and boutonné (pulled loops) throughout the design. The pattern and neutral color palette are inspired by birch trees and winter walks in the woods. Designed with beginner rigid heddle weavers in mind, this project combines a sturdy 3/2 organic cotton warp with a textural cotton slub weft. Order a kit.
