Weaver Notes

20″ wide, 600 ends plus floating selvages.
Straight draw on 24 shafts so each towel could be different.
I put on a 10 yard warp.
I wove each towel about 37″ on the loom and hand hemmed.
The towels are generously sized; the one for the towel exchange has finished dimensions of 17.75″ by 30.75″.
Relatively lightweight, easy to use towels.

This was inspired by “Santa Cloth” by Becky Hamblin in The Best of Weaver’s: Huck Lace, and she cites Thomas Jackson, Weaver, Shuttle Craft Monograph 13. Originally a 12 shaft pattern, I used 24 shafts and so was able to come up with several variations on the pattern. This one has a huck border around plain weave diamonds.
