Traditional Monks Belt Kitchen Towels
Weave two different Scandinavian designs with these 100% cotton kitchen towels. Super-absorbent and oh, so beautiful!
Weave structure: Monks Belt
Yarns: Though the pattern calls for cottolin, we like how our Aurora Earth 8/2 unmercerized cotton works for this towel.
We have also added a nice touch with Organic Cotton 10/2 for warp and tabby weft!
Equipment needed: 4-shaft loom; 20" weaving width; 12-dent reed; 2 shuttles, 7 bobbins
Finished size: four generous-size 16.5 " x 31" towels
The pattern from Design Collection #18 makes two towels but this kit has enough yarn to make four towels on a 5 yard warp.
Instructions needed: Handwoven Design Collection #18: A Treasury of Towels available from Long Thread Media for warping and weaving instructions.
