Project 2 – Two tea towels

Sue said she would like two of the tea towels in the same pattern to use as couch arm covers.  So I used warp and weft threads as for Project 1, but with the warp threads 210cm long.

In February 2018, I threaded the loom using p43, Marie Andrew pattern no 4, of of “A handweaver’s pattern book” by Marguerite Porter Davidson.  I used freesia (yellow) with scuba blue and chilli pepper (red) with dazzling blue and 6 rows of plain between them.  Straight off the loom they were about 35cm x 63cm.  The finished size (after hemming and washing) was 28cm x 52cm.
