Best of Handwoven: Top Ten Towels on Eight Shafts -Handwoven eBook Printed Copy Weaving Book

Author: Handwoven
25 pgs. (paper,color)
ISBN number:HYEbookW05W02

Now available in print exclusively from Halcyon Yarn. There are actually more than twenty towels in Top Ten Towels on Eight Shafts since several very different looking towels can be produced on the same threading in some of the projects. Not all of the towels require eight shafts; some use five or six. All of them, however, show the advantages in design and use of weave structure provided by more than four shafts. You can weave pictures, like the borders of sheep in Georgeann Curran's summer and winter towels, for example, or of Christmas trees and Santa Clauses in Kathy Bright's rosepath towels. Or you can use Kathleen Farling's eight-shaft twill threading for eight completely different-looking twill towels. There are towels in traditional M's and O's, towels in variations of lace, towels in undulating twill.

This ebook, and all of Halcyon Yarn's ebooks, are printed in full color on acid-free coated stock, saddle-stitched and ready for immediate browsing and convenient posting next to your loom.
