Summer and Winter Towels

Designed by Sarah Resnick

Summer and Winter is an ideal technique to play with color gradations. This structure uses Mallo for both tabby and pattern weft to create a soft transition from yellow to green to blue. These vibrant towels are reminiscent of watercolor sketches, and appear as if they were woven with hand-dyed yarn. Order a kit.

Summer and Winter Towels

Fun weave. The towels are very soft and absorbent right off the loom. They wash easily in the washer and do not wrinkle after being fully dried in the dryer. So, no ironing! The mallo yarn is very nice to weave with and the towel feels heavier in weight which I like when I am using it. I chose the colorway of Natural, Spice, and Fir as all colors go well with my kitchen floor.

Easy pattern and weave.

These towels wove up very easily. The pattern is easy to follow and mallo yarn works nicely

Carol Remington
Love love Gist yarns and patterns!

Patterns are easy to follow. My favorite thing is their linen yarn! First time weaving with linen and had no issues. From what my fellow weavers say that is unusual not to have broken threads.

Great yarns and weaving inspiration

I am weaving this pattern now and am very pleased with it. Gist always provides the inspiration, the yarn, and the information to enhance my weaving journey.
