Turned Twill 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 5-yard warp, you can weave a couple of runners, or weave one runner and some towels. The weft colors can be varied on the towels. The picture of the runner has a charcoal weft; the towel is woven on the same warp with a cream colored weft.
