Comments about Warp Yarn: Valley Yarns 20/2 Linen (100% Linen, 1650 yds/8.8 oz) Half Bleach, 1110 yds. #93 Baroque Garden Towel PDF:
This pattern was easy to follow for my first overshot project. The towels came out very well although I'm actually using them as table runners because they're too pretty to use as dish towels! I used a darker blue than the pattern called for and one tube of the linen was almost enough to finish the project - just one quill short.
The design seemed a little washed out while I was weaving but when it was finished the design became clear.
