Traditionally Bumberet Towels are woven on a 4 shaft loom and are threaded in groups of three. These towels have brought bumberet to rigid heddle weavers!

The use of a pick-up stick creates a richly textured and eye catching towel reminiscent of a traditional bumberet towel.

Equipment needed: rigid heddle loom; 24” weaving width, 10 dent reed, 4 stick shuttles or boat shuttle with extra bobbins, 1 pick-up stick.

Skill Level: The pattern is a simple repeat but does requires extra patience to warp.

Fun to weave

I chose the blue color way and was pleased to receive the yarn within a few days. I'm an advanced beginner and was able to warp my loom just fine. Two quibbles: first, the yarns were numbered 1-6 in a way that didn't match the photos; second, pick #1 in the pattern did not work for my RH loom. Instead of "heddle up, pick up stick forward," I had to do "heddle NEUTRAL, pick up stick forward." I figured this out quickly and the rest went smoothly.

Amazing pattern and fabulous kit!

These are a stunning pair of towels and Tammy Bast writes an amazing pattern! It's called "Bumberet Inspired" but it truly is the Bumberet weaving pattern, achieved with pick-up sticks. The colors of the Aurora Earth in the kit just pop with the pattern! I love that I don't need to purchase entire cones of colors to make these on my rigid heddle loom.
