The inspiration for these towels was a scallop pattern we found in a weave draft book. We planned the first towel around it and then played around with different tie-ups and treadlings. The result is this set of towels that are related by color and threading but not identical, all in the classic towel yarn 8/2 unmercerized cotton. The project makes 3 towels, each approximately 14" x 26". They can be machine washed and dried.
You will need:
- 1 tube each of 3 colors of 8/2B cotton
- 18" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 12-dent reed
- 414 heddles
- boat shuttle and 3 bobbins
Our towels are woven using 8/2B Cotton in colors 1430 Orange, 1315 Light Orange, and 4272 Blue.
