Pattern is wonderful. Thank you

New weaver and excited to try the pattern. Please direct me to resources to learn to use multiple colors in my warp on a 4 or 8 shaft. Appreciate very much.

Not for the faint of heart

I bought this kit to weave on my rigid heddle loom. Firstly, i don't recommend using a rigid heddle loom for these. With 340 ends, and 5 yards of warp, unless you're VERY diligent, you'll wind up with a tangled mess at your beam. Having said that, I forged ahead anyway. But I'm not pleased with what I'm seeing. It's loosely woven, no matter what I've done. Also, the pattern needs a lot of clarification on the pattern itself. You can't depend on people reading the blog post to get instructions on weaving these towels. That information should be in the patten itself. There's also no mention of how the heddles are managed, and I'm just winging it. I don't know what they're going to look like when I'm done. I'm hoping for the best.
