Checked Twill TowelsDesigned by Elizabeth Springett
These cotton towels feature warp and weft stripes, along with a Twill structure that changes direction within each block, to create a distinctive check pattern. Designed with adventurous beginners in mind, this project is ideal for learning how to create a bold visual affect using Twill, one of the most essential techniques of woven fabric construction.

I like the pattern. As a new weaver, I was confused with step 2...It said (2. Begin the first towel by weaving a 1 1/2” plain weave hem)..I could not get a total plain weave because of the threading (there was a break in the threading, ie 1,2,3,4 x 5 then 2,1, then 4,3,2,1 x 4, then 4,3).. mostly plain weave but not totally,,A statement to that issue would help a new person
These towels were my first twill project (and first ‘real’ project) on a multi shaft loom. Written very clearly, and easy to follow. Beam is a beautiful yarn to weave with.
I had fun doing these towels. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I used an 8/2 cotton yarn of colors Sage, Royal Blue and Periwinkle.
Very clear and easy to follow. Love the finished product!
The 3/2 yarn is such a pleasure to work with in this towel pattern. Even with having to undo a bit of the weaving to correct an error, the yarn kept its integrity as I continued. I would definitely buy this yarn again to repeat this project.
