Warp & Weft:4 cones of Duet Cotton/Linen Weaving Yarn
Warp Color Order: Wind a warp in the following sequence for a total of 240 warp ends.
Weft Color Order Towel #1:Begin and end each towel with hemstitch. When you finish weaving the first towel, weave at least a 3" spacer with scrap yarn before beginning the second towel. Repeat the following sequence 4 times for the first towel.
Weft Color Order Towel #2: Repeat the following sequence 2 times.
Finishing: Once you have finished weaving, remove the towels from the loom and cut them apart at the center of the scrap yarn spacer. If you did not use hemstitch, secure the edges with overhand knots to create the tassel fringe. Hand wash with mild soap, hang to dry, (or machine wash cold & tumble dry warm if you prefer), and press. Trim the fringe to 1.5” on each side.
"My name is Chelsay Russell and I create woven goods out of my home in Branson, Missouri. I started weaving in fall of 2015 by watching tutorials online and by summer of 2016, I created Little Weavebird. My small business has been growing ever since, as well my passion for the art of weaving.
Quickly after starting out on a rigid heddle loom, I knew I wanted to expand my knowledge and skill set. I bought a floor loom from Leclerc called, Weavebird. That is how "Little Weavebird" came to be."
