Rigid Heddle ~ Sweet Blue Towels
Just like bright blue cotton candy from the county fair, weaving these two towels is an absolute treat. They’re also the perfect projects for learning pick-up.
Towel 1 uses simple pick-up to create small warp floats, while Towel 2 features a longer, but equally simple, pickup sequence to create both warp and weft floats.
(These towels are a blue version of the Savory Towels for the Rigid-Heddle Loom featured in Handwoven November/ December 2017.)
