Eclectic Color-and-Weave Towels
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Eclectic Color-and-Weave Towels that were designed by Deborah Jarchow and featured in Handwoven May/June 2023.
Brighten up any kitchen with these towels!
Traditional color-and-weave and four contrasting color pairs in warp and weft.
It’s fun and interesting to see how the same patterns can look very different depending on which color pairs are crossing.
This project is a wonderful way to explore a variety of color-and-weave patterns while creating a beautiful set of towels. The resulting patterns look magically complex!
