Sweet as Pie Towels
We all agree that plain weave can be an exciting weave structure in itself, but wouldn't it be fun to weave texture like we see being accomplished on shaft looms?
With this towel project we are going to go a step further, increasing our skill and our loom’s capabilities by using a pick-up stick to weave lots of texture!
Read our August Weaving Challenge Blog for this free pattern and for more about weaving textured towels.

These towels are relaxing to weave. You can easily get into the zone and the result is a textured towel with an interesting border. I just bought a second kit in a different color way because I enjoyed the first so much. I had gifted the first to a family member.
