Finnish Lace Dinner Napkins by Gayle Pace

These napkins by Gayle Pace are lovely in their simplicity and charm. With 3 colors of cottolin from your stash, you can weave napkins that match your dinner table, and wow your guests. A mini cone of cottolin holds about 1,700 yards. For the main color you’ll need about ½ of a mini cone and for the other two colors, much less. Color wraps will help you get started. Would you rather weave towels? Weave 20 repeats rather than 10 repeats for 3 towels, and skip the side hems.
