Valley Yarns #71 Towel in 4-Shaft Finnish Twill PDF
Digital items are not included in shipping calculations (see our delivery page for more info). Digital Patterns are available immediately after purchase.
Notice that 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.
