A few of our favorite Winning Towels projects using Pearl Cotton yarns…

Colors by Mozart, waffle weave towels by Tomoe Edwards.

Fabulously complex colors made simple in a 4-shaft waffle weave. Tomoe Edwards matches colors to musical notes to create a colorful woven “score.” These melodic beauties are based on the first movement of Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony. Whether you’re a music fan or just love the depth of colors, the project is an education in where to find inspiration. Try these as written, or pick your own favorite piece from which to create a custom colorway with musical origins!

Makes two hemmed towels, 15.75″ by 18.5″ each.
