Valley Yarns #64 Modified Star-Work Dishtowel on 8 Shafts PDF

This is an incredibly easy fabric to weave. Both the threading and treadling are point twill. The tie-up is modified from a 16-shaft hearts and star-work tie-up in Holroyd. It is woven wrong side up because the treadling is lighter that way.

Available as a downloadable PDF only.

Equipment: 8-shaft loom with 10-dent reed, minimum weaving width of 24”; 1 shuttle; 1 bobbin; temple (optional)

Finished Size: 19 3/8” X 28 ¾”. Size will vary slightly, depending on the weaver’s style.

Yarn: Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton, 3360 YPP
WARP: 2550 nautical, approx. 1120 yards; 8001 white, approx. 190 yards
WEFT: 8001 white, approx. 785 yards for two towels plus 75 yards in a finer size, if available, for hems. If finer unmercerized cotton is not available, use the 8/2.

Width in Reed: 21 ¾” Sett: sett 2 per dent in a 10-dent reed

Total Warp Ends: 437 including floating selvages

Warp Length: 3 yards allows for two 32” towels (before finishing), each with half-inch hems on each end. A 7-yard warp will give six towels with just a small amount of yarn left over.

        Comments about Valley Yarns #64 Modified Star-Work Dishtowel on 8 Shafts PDF:

        I needed to modify this draft, I emailed Barbara and she responded immediately. I LOVE my results. I changed the color and the sett to accomodate the equipment I had on hand and the upcoming holidays. Barbara was WONDERFUL. I love the Valley yarn. Even with my inexperience, I had no tangles and no need to "comb" the warp. I love the pattern. It is SO easy to thread and treadle. I immediately realized I was gaining experience just like Barbara said I would. I will buy yarn and patterns from WEBS again just for this kind of support and results. I am so happy! I ordered another reed just to weave this pattern again in the correct sett, I loved it that much!
