Summer and Winter Towels, quick start colorways

The Handwoven May/June 2013 issue is packed with all things color. We were particularly taken with the “Four Blocks on Four Shafts: Summer and Winter Towels” by Sarah Jackson. The towels depend upon the interplay of colors in warp, pattern weft and tabby weft. Sarah uses 6 colors of similar value and 1 of a higher contrast. Wow – just choosing that many colors is quite a feat. 55213130-A Handwoven May/June 2013

So in hopes of encouraging you to give this fantastic pattern a go we’ve chosen colors in 3 colorways using Homestead 8/2 Cotton Yarn; blues and greens similar to those pictured, earth tones and sunset coral and pink tones. Click through to the ‘project colorways’ below and you can add the entire colorway to your cart with one click! You can also, of course, add only some of the colors and substitute / customize with your own creative selections!
