Box of Chocolates Towels
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Box of Chocolates Towels that were designed by Michele Marshall of Mingo's Corner Shop.
Box of Chocolates - A mixed assortment of chocolate cream candies, it's a surprise in each little wrapper! These towels are a bit like that in that the 3-shaft patterns appear in boxes and in different "flavors" across the rows of these towels! Each a little different, some more involved than others, but all entirely achievable on a rigid heddle loom with two heddles.
New color just added! Michele Marshall worked up a beautiful blue version which she is calling Box of Snowflakes!
She has also worked up the draft for a 16” loom size for those that have smaller looms or want to weave smaller size hand towels.
This is a rigid heddle project for the first-time adventurer into multi-shaft weaving on the rigid heddle loom.
