Weaver Notes

This is actually a variation of the above draft. I was inspired by similar variation I’d seen in a Facebook weaving group. I loved the way she had highlighted one repeat of the design instead of repeating it across the whole towel – she had also turned the whole thing however since this was my first step away from using a warp “recipe” I decided not to attempt that. The designing experience was… humbling. I learned a lot of what not to do – but luckily I got there in the end and I’m really pleased with the finished product.

The finished towels were machine washed in warm water and dried on high heat. Then pressed and hems hand sewn.

The attached draft only accounts for the center. Repeat the first 15 ends as needed to center the threading in your warp.
