Beautiful pattern, but write up is different

I love the look of these towels and have started weaving them. However, in looking back at the picture of the first towel of the set, the weft counts and color choices are actually different than the pattern shows. That is a bit frustrating, but I can adjust it as I go now that I have realized this.

Love them!

I have made 7 different towels using this pattern and I love them! Nice big towels for a multitude of uses. I will definitely use this pattern again and again!

Slow weaver

I did not want to ignore this request. I have warped the loom but have not begun to weave. So far the instructions were easy to follow and I do not anticipate any problems. Sorry I am not much help.

Loom too small

I’m working on adapting the chart to my 15 inch loom. Wish I had known that before ordering.

looking good

used the colors in the kitchen, burgundy, black, beige and white and they are so pretty that almost didn't want to use them
