Warp & Weft: 3 cones of Beam Organic Cotton
Warp Color Order:Warp the loom using your preferred method for a total of 216 ends, 2.5 yards (90”) long following the warp chart. Center for a weaving width of 18” and sley 1 end per hole and slot in a 12 or 12.5 dent reed.
Weft Color Order:Weave the first towel with Yarn B and the second towel with Yarn C. Each towel should measure 26” long in loom. Weave with scrap yarn for 1” in between the towels.
Finishing: Zigzag stitch the unfinished edges. Machine wash cold and hang to dry or tumble dry low. Cut the towels apart at the center of the scrap yarn divider. Finish with a hand or machine sewn hem - if this is your first hem, check out our tutorial on hemming handwoven fabric.

Sarah manages Gist Yarn’s finances, works to keep our team happy and thriving, and builds partnerships with mills and dyehouses to bring new lines of yarn to life.
