Kissy Face Towels
This fun deflected doubleweave pattern by Elisabeth Hill is a fun and modern pattern! This is for towels, but you may want to use this for scarves and baby blankets as well! This is a revised version using 8/2 Cotton or 8/2 Cottolin. There are 5 variations included in this pattern, but many more are possible. Put on a long warp — you will have lots of fun, and get lots of “kissy face” from friends and family who receive these towels as gifts. Optional inkle hanging band instructions are included.
