Linen Twill Towels - Free Pattern and WIF Download
This project utilizes different twill threadings and a simple twill treadling. The pictured project and associated WIF uses 6 colors in the Warp, but a simple adaptation would be to use fewer colors in the Warp. The towel pictured on the left was woven with a Cloud Grey weft yarn and the towel on the right had a Navy weft. You could also weave the towel with one of the warp colors. Feel free to experiment with colors you like!
