Now you can see why they call it Ladder Hem Stitching... it's like rungs on a ladder. Each end of the runner is done with the weft being the same color as the warp, taupe, and is woven in a straight twill. The body of the runner is done with pink weft on the taupe warp, in a balanced weave (24 epi and 24 ppi). This is a Birds-eye weave.
Here is the completed table runner, wet finished, ends trimmed, ready to go to the fair. It is hanging over the back of my livingroom chair.
