Towels in a Modern Arrangement by Linda Gettmann

If you have been weaving a while, you probably have a bunch of leftover 8/2 cotton in lots of different colors. This is the project for you. Pick two neutrals for your warp that look good together and then start experimenting for your weft, drawing from your stash. Linda Gettmann wove 6 towels each with a different pair of weft colors, choosing pairs that were close to each other on the color wheel, such as burgundy and red, or two colors of green. For your tabby, you can either use 20/2 cotton in similar colors or go into your sewing thread stash.
