These towels are so beautiful! I love the combo of the linen with the thicker, softer pattern stripes. I used the duet color pear instead of the yellow color in the pattern and was very pleased. I feel the warp needs about 5 more inches. I followed the pattern to the letter and it took every single bit of the warp and I even had to just throw the bobbin for the last couple inches because the shed was so small at the end. I’m using a Schacht mighty wolf for reference and was VERY careful not to waste any yarn tying my warp on. I also supplemented a couple stripes with leftover duet because I just didn’t think I’d have enough of the cerise color. A little bit of stressful “weaving roulette” on this one!

When I saw these towels on the Gist website I knew I had to weave them. I bought enough of the Duet Sun, Duet Cerise, and Beam Blush yarns to make 6 towels. I love the color combination as it matches my kitchen decor. They were so easy to weave!!

I live in Australia and ordered the pattern only, the online process was easy and efficient. Looking forward to making these beautiful towels.

I love Monk's Belt and bought this pattern as it has a slightly different take. I haven't made them yet, but will enlarge the pattern as I like a larger dishtowel!

I haven’t started the towels yet but I’m looking forward to weaving them. I’m planning to make them for my DIL because they just happen to be her favorite colors! I do have to say that I really appreciate the designer’s note on the draft that the tie up was for a rising shed loom. I have a sinking shed loom so now I am able to make the adjustment before weaving, thus saving myself the trouble of having to look at the underside of my fabric for the pattern! This was a great idea! I wish more designers would indicate this small detail on their drafts.
