Towel in 4-Shaft Finnish Twill Kit from Valley Yarns includes the PDF draft download and two colors of 8/2 Cotton yarn needed to weave 7 towels.

The primary stripes in this towel are in the center. That seemed to be a good place to place the stripes, because we usually fold a towel in thirds, hang it with the center facing out, and the visual interest is at the edges where we don’t see it! The draft is adapted from Ester Perheentupa’s #41 draft in Davison, A Hand-Weaver’s Pattern Book, p.37.
