Trick or Treat Towels
Creating a yarn color palette is exciting but the process can be daunting if you're not sure how to combine colors in weaving. We've made it easy with these Trick or Treat Towel color combinations!
These towels are inspired by our Aurora Earth Bundles that take the guesswork out of choosing colors. Aurora Earth Bundles together with this Trick or Treat Towel pattern make a perfect match!
These Trick or Treat Towels are featured in our October Weaving Challenge. Be sure to read all about this month's challenge on our October Blog Post.
You can also weave the Trick or Treat Towels on your 4-shaft loom. We've included over 200 extra yards in each of the colors which will allow you the extra warp needed for your floor loom. I would suggest warping 3 yards rather than 2.75 yards since 4-shaft looms take a little extra waste and take up. You can choose to weave this in plain weave or twill.

This kit in the Witches Brew color way was beautiful when completed. I took Jodi Ybarra’s suggestion and made 4 towers on the same warp, each of them different. There were stripes, blocks, and my favorite, pick up. It was the October Challenge so there is a blog post with helpful suggestions.
