Buffalo Plaid Woven Dish Towel for Rigid Heddle or 4–Shaft - Pattern Download Weaving Pattern
Author: Halcyon Blake
Our Buffalo Plaid Towel Kit is a fun project in 2/1 twill for trying out two heddle, rigid heddle weaving. You can weave these on your four shaft loom using only three shafts if you'd like. It's a familiar and classic “buffalo plaid” which uses two equal color blocks Black plus Natural white, classic red, green or blue in the warp sett at 18 EPI. Folded over hems woven in 10/2 Black Pearl Cotton weft gives a clean, less bulky finish.
Floating selvedge warps maintain a consistent edge on a 4–shaft loom and are helpful when manipulating two heddles on a rigid heddle loom.
Expand your intermediate rigid heddle skills or just have fun on your four-shaft loom weaving this quick and enjoyable project.
Equipment needed: Rigid Heddle loom at least 20" wide with two heddle capacity and two 12 ends per inch heddles, or a 4-Shaft loom at least 20 inches wide, shuttles.
