Summer and Winter TowelsDesigned by Sarah Resnick
Summer and Winter is an ideal technique to play with color gradations. This structure uses a tabby and pattern weft (both in Mallo Cotton Slub), which are utilized here 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.
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.
These towels wove up very easily. The pattern is easy to follow and mallo yarn works nicely
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.
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.
