This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Random Exchange Towels that were designed by Kathie Roig for Handwoven Sept/Oct 2021.

These colorful towels are based on a twill pattern from A Weaver’s Book of 8-Shaft Patterns by Carol Strickler and a color horoscope weaving workshop with Bonnie Tarses.

The colors are organized in a “rainbow sequence” shifting from warm to cool hues, then back to warm again.

Note: similar color substitutions have been made in the 8/2 cottons.
