I have been inspired to make a name draft overshot table runner for my niece and her partner, who have just moved into their first home together. I would like to use some combination of cotton yarns, but I am unclear about both the sett and the choice of yarns for the tabby and the pattern wefts. Can I use 8/2 cotton for the warp and the tabby weft and 8/4 for the pattern weft, or would I do better to use 16/2 for the warp and tabby weft, or??? And depending on your advice, what sett should I use? Thank you.
