Weaver Notes

This draft was enhanced with the use of color warp stripes and can then be woven in a number of complementary weft colors. I found some errors in the original draft which I corrected and changed the widths of the straight twill, braided twill and half-basket elements and half-basket weave sections.

I used Bluegrass Mills 6/2 cotton for both warp and weft. There were 410 ends sett at 20 epi. Towels were finished with a handsewn hem then machine washed and dried.
