I did all 6 repeats of the pattern. It’s definitely a tighter weave and I would rather have a slightly too long placemat than a too short placemat!
Each repeat measures at about 4.25 in length. Less shrinkage, the placemat may be around 21 inches in length. That is according to the pattern. There may be more shrinkage. There may be less. In which case, the placemat will be long. Long but quite elegant if I don’t say so myself!
On to the next placemat. And then planning to do a whole second set of this pattern!
