I love to teach skills that will help weavers develop their own ideas and creative sensibility to become independent designers. Tea towels are a small and inexpensive way to experiment without the financial stress of expensive yarns.
Once you have a successful towel you can look at it as a design sketch for a blanket, a placemat, a piece of yardage or a scarf…….the possibilities are endless and on top of all that, tea towels make wonderful gifts. – Jane
These beautiful thick, absorbent towels were designed by Linda Knowles of Vancouver, B.C. They are based on the block profile from a scarf she wove in Bambu/Silk & Wool. The towels are woven with a 2/8 cotton warp and a boucle cotton weft in turned twill.
There will be enough 2/8 cotton left over to make another set of plain weave towels.
