Waffle and Twill Towels
Designed by Sue Anne Sullivan
These soft, absorbent towels are woven in a combination of plain weave, waffle weave, and twill, using three colors of Beam Organic Cotton. This project encourages weavers of all skill levels to create a functional piece of cloth using bold color combinations and multiple weaving structures. Order a kit.

This is a gorgeous pattern. I've tried it in a variety of non-mercerized cottons at different setts. Before threading the heddles, I'd advise coloring your draft. The warping and the threading are a little different so the coloring helps. I also struggled with throwing 1 of a color then 2 of another color until I started throwing all at one time then mixing it by threading from the front of the loom and letting all the tangles out when rolling it on. Unorthodox but it works for me.
I have not done the project yet but it is the top of my list !,, Betty
The pattern was easy to follow and my towels turned out beautiful. I used tangerine, lemon, and hibiscus.
I just got started on this, but a fun, well written pattern. I think I’ll switch around the colors for my second towel, but who knows.
