Who Gets the Jackrabbit Napkin? Drawloom Dilemma

Jackrabbit. This critter is one I would like to see more often. We call him “Jack,” or if there are two of them together, they are known in our family as “Jack and Jackylina.” The jackrabbit makes me smile because of his tall ears and mischievous-looking face. The nice thing is he doesn’t cause any mischief, like some of the other critters around here. He will sit completely still, without a twitch. I’m sure he wants you will think he’s a rock, and pass on by without noticing him. But if you get a little too close, he hops up and quickly dashes away.

When we have all twelve napkins at the dining room table for a family gathering, how will we decide who gets Jack the Jackrabbit? This one could be everyone’s favorite.

Teal blue linen weft. The jackrabbit is one of my favorite critters in our Texas Hill Country area. I like their humorous profile.
Just reached the halfway point on this jackrabbit image. This is all single-unit draw until I get beyond the area where the nose and feet are in the side borders. After that, the borders will be the simpler pattern-shaft draw.

As with the other critter napkins in this series, the borders at top and bottom, and some of the side borders, use the pattern shaft draw system. The jackrabbit in the center and the “broken borders” use the single unit draw system. I am very happy to weave with this Myrehed Combination Drawloom Attachment. The possibilities are endless…and fun!

Happy Weaving!

  1. It looks very interesting as always. I hope you will show all the finished napkins when they are all done.
    Had to google “jackrabbit” and found a rabbit with very large ears. The Swedish translation called it “donkey hare”.
    We have all sorts of hares here but no jackrabbits. Our winter is here, so the Swedish hares take on a white fur. And so they can “vanish ” in the snow.

    1. Hi Ida, I’m glad you want to see all the napkins when they are finished. I will certainly show them! Yes, the jackrabbit has very large ears, and it is actually a hare, not a rabbit, despite the name. That is very interesting that the Swedish hares take on white fur to blend in with the snow. That’s amazing. Thanks for the input!

      Happy winter,
