Detailed Description

Towels make great weaving projects: they are useful to have in the kitchen, handy to keep on hand for last-minute gifts, and they are a great way to try out a new structure or technique on a small scale. In this project, we are using light and dark variations of the same color. While the structure is plain weave, the effect of alternating light and dark colors in both the warp and the weft creates a pattern. It is a recipe for a pair of spiffy towels woven in 22/2 Cottolin sett at 20 epi. Cottolin has slightly more crispness and absorbency than 100% cotton but more stretch than 100% linen, so it is a fun yarn to work with. The kit makes two coordinated hemmed towels that are 18" x 23". They can be machine washed and dried.

You will need:

  • 21" weaving width
  • 2 harnesses
  • 10 dent reed
  • 416 heddles
  • 2 boat shuttles
  • 2 bobbins

We used #2056 Blue and #2027 Light Blue in our towels. If you would like these colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own two colors, please see our 22/2 Cottolin page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your color selections in the box above.
