The 40th Anniversary draft for March is for these beautiful Ribbon Towels designed by Carol Birtwistle, a set of striped towels with a beautiful twill medley. Towels truly are some of the nicest things to weave. Valley Yarns 8/2 unmercerized cotton is very forgiving, has beautiful colors and makes a very absorbent towel. The draft is designed to weave two towels from a single warp. Keep one, give one as a gift and think of designing your own treadling for the second towel.

Ribbon Towels

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 40th Anniversary 03 Ribbon Towels PDF:

This draft makes beautiful towels. Directions are clear and well laid out. I especially appreciated the color-coded threading draft and wish more drafts provided that service. The only change I would make would be to add heddle counts included in the draft. I can't wait to make more of these!
