I was introduced to this pattern, “Checked Houndstooth,” in a Scandinavian Towel class taught by Melissa Weaver Dunning. This traditional design can be found in Simple Weaves by Birgitta Bengtsson Bjork & Tina Ingell, p. 92.
Warp is wound 36 Periwinkle, 4 Marine, 4 White, 4 M, 4W, 4M, 4W, 4M, 4W, 4M—a total of 72 ends in one repeat, ending with 36 Periwinkle to balance. Add an extra 4 threads for EACH selvage, doubling the first and last four threads. Weft color order is the same.
Materials used were 8/2 Brassard Cottolins in Periwinkle, Marine, and Blanchi (White).
