August Towels

The towels for August are based on Huck Lace.  Using a design layout similar to the towels for June, this gives me a great opportunity to investigate the differences between Atwater Bronson Lace and Huck Lace.  And I will also be able to investigate the differences between Huck Lace and Huck Weave (spots), which uses the same threading, but different treadling.  So, I will weave at least two towels, one in Huck Lace, and one in Huck Weave.

I will be using good old 2/8 cotton, in natural colour, sett at 18 ends per inch.

This pattern, like the others in this series is based on the article  “Weaving Towels as a Means of Learning the Basic Four-Shaft Weaves”, by Clotilde Barrett, Weavers Journal, Fall 1983, Volume VIII, Number 2, Issue 30, pages 11- 19.  The link is:

I’m having a lot of fun playing with these weaves, and the monthly deadline keeps me motivated.

My changes to the draft are shown below:

I have been steadily weaving since 1980. I enjoy sharing and passing on my learning.

    I wish I was as focused and motivated as you are, with this monthly project! I just jump randomly around, from one thing to another. Your approach is better suited to learning and making progress, i think.
