Tarahumara Corn (Chili Pepper) Towels
These towels are HOT!
Light your senses on fire with the colors of red-hot chili peppers. Like other members of the red family, chili-pepper is dramatic and exciting. It is associated with exotic tastes and cultural diversity. It's just what we need to spice up our lives!
The pick-up technique in this pattern is a 3/1 weft float variation. There are many, many ways to achieve warp and weft floats, but this four-step variation is one of my favorites because it's easy to remember the four easy steps and you can leave the pick-up stick in place throughout the entire project.
Choose either 24" Version or Cricket Loom Version depending on your loom size.
