Valley Yarns #71 Towel in 4-Shaft Finnish Twill PDF

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.
