Notes: 

These coasters from four separate warps are the result of an effort to use up small amounts of various 8/2 cottons. With each successive warp I learned something new. Weaving them was so much fun that I saved the warp to tie on at least one more color way. Even now I'm juggling colors among the rest of my leftover yarns.

Update: In all, there were six different colorways of this design. By Christmas I was able to give six-packs of coasters, one from each of the six warps. These were really fun to weave and fun to give.

I like the design

I like this style. I have seen the words 'rep weave' in reference to dish towel kits. I shall search to see and learn more.

8/2 sett

If you were using 8/2 cotton for warp, what was your sett to make the warp cover the filler?  And did you use several strands of the 8/2 for your thick weft?  If so, how many?  If not, what did you use?

Sett: 48 e.p.i.

Hi, Peg.Cherre

These were sett at 48 e.p.i. That seemed a bit dense but it worked nicely. For thick weft I used an unmarked cone of thick, yellow yarn that had been on my shelf for a very long time. It was a little on the thin side but the bright yellow peeking out at the selvedges made me happy.
