This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Dornick Twill Towels designed by Mary Frost for Handwoven March/April 2002.

These towels are woven on eight shafts using a draft by Sallie Guy. Dornick twills are broken twills in which the twill also changes direction at the breaks.  The runs can vary in length. In this draft, a run of four threads in one direction is followed by a run of 12 in the opposite direction. 

There is a 4-shaft draft available in the original pattern found in Handwoven March/April 2002.
