What materials did you use? Sugar & Cream cotton

What are you most proud of? I've always wanted to try to learn how to weave, and I can't believe that I actually made the towels and they came out pretty good!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My only advice, is that I would not use regular settings to wash and dry the towels, even though they're 100% cotton. I put them through a regular wash, and the fringe became very tangled up, and there were pieces of yarn all over the towels and in the washing machine. I thought I had ruined it, but thankfully I didn't!

Nice! I'm not finding how much and what wt of yarn to use. Where is that info in the project sheet?

Hi kbaringer1358013, It was on page 5 of the pattern/instructions. I used 1 cone of Lily Sugar & Cream white, and 2 balls of Green Twists. It was done with an 8-dent heddle. Hope that helps!

They came out great! Nice job. I'm still working on mine, hope they turn out as nice.
