We’re welcoming the spring equinox with a set of napkins woven with Mallo Cotton Slub in two shades of green. The colors shift from dark to light in anticipation of the warmth and new growth this season brings. Order a kit.
This is a cool pattern but I have two big complaints. 1 - $7 is just too much to ask for such a simple pattern. Even as a beginner I could look at the images and see how the warp was placed. Thankfully I purchased a kit and it came included 2 - this yarn is not very forgiving as a warp. At least not for a beginner. I guess maybe I’m too rough but once I had my warp in place and starting picking I quickly shredded several threads. Any newbies out there using mallo as a warp - be extra careful when direct warping.
I followed this pattern to create two tea towels instead of four napkins and ended with enough warp to weave a third smaller towel. The pattern was very easy to direct warp and the weaving went quickly on my rigid heddle loom.
