Turned Twill 3D Runner and Towel Pattern and WIF in Euroflax 14/2
This pattern is a digital download of the instructional PDF, a WIF for the tie-up and a WIF for the liftplan.
This project uses twill blocks with color to give a 3-dimensional effect. It’s really simple to warp and weave. There are two colors I the warp and a third single color in the weft.
With a 3-yard warp, you can weave one long runner (finished length approximately 68" ) or approximately 2 towels. Double the yarn requirements will accommodate a 5 or 6 yard warp. Consider varying the weft color on the individual runners or towels.
The weft colors can be varied on the towels. The picture of the runner has a Heron Grey and Cloud Grey warp with a Charcoal weft. The pictured towel on the same warp is woven with a Cream colored weft. Yarn kits are available here:
