By Carol Berry. An efficient way to produce a large number of towels with less wasted time and yarn is to put on a long warp that has been threaded in a versatile structure. Carol Berry gives four variations on a turned twill threading that yields eighteen different designs. General guides are given for the set-up, then it is up to the weaver to determine the colors used and the number of repeats in each block. While detailed instructions are not given for each towel, the color photographs show the variety possible with each warp and encourage the weaver to experiment.
To weave the towels as shown you will need a 24" or wider loom with 8 harnesses. They could be adapted to a narrower width but would still need 8 harnesses to create the 3/1 turned twill blocks.
