Striped Spring Towels

by Robyn Spady

4-Shaft Project

 
"When I first looked at Pantone’s Spring 2011 color collection “An Exotic Journey,” I was intrigued by the joy of the colors, especially appealing during a dark and dreary Northwest winter. Dish towels, always a favorite project of mine, seemed like just the right canvas for this palette! I planned ten twill stripes and eleven basketweave stripes across the width of a 22" towel. The relationship between the twill and
basketweave stripe widths is determined by the Golden Ratio (twill stripe width is .618 times the basketweave stripe width; see Resources). The point-twill direction in alternate stripes is reversed, creating a subtle difference between them."
