Beautiful complex patterns but easy to weave

I really enjoyed weaving the towels and loved working with the Beam yarn. The resulting towels make lovely hand towels for the kitchen (to me these are kitchen colors) and they are soft and absorbent. The draft is easy to follow — this is my experience with all Gist patterns. Try them.
