Ripsmatta Kitchen Towels     

Ripsmatta is a Scandinavian term meaning rep mat. The more you design and weave this warp-faced structure, the more excited you will get and the more possible uses will occur to you.

Warp rep is a block weave in which two shafts are required for each block, one shaft for the pattern color, one shaft for the background color. A thick pick is inserted with one of the shafts raised, followed by a thin pick with the other shaft raised. The warp color raised for the thick pick dominates on the face of the cloth, the other color on the back.

We have wound off all the colors of the thicker (8/2 Aurora Earth cotton) yarns that you will need to weave four generous size kitchen towels (16 ¾” x 28 ¼”).

We have also supplied Pearly Perle 20/2 in natural that you can use in place of the sewing thread that is called for in this pattern, or you can purchase the thinner pick (sewing thread—Mettler metrosene or Guttermann) as indicated in the directions.

We have included enough warp yarn (plus extra yardage) of each color Aurora Earth to weave one towel in each of the four colors, giving you a set of four nicely color coordinated towels.

You will need Handwoven March/April 2002 for complete instructions.

You can also find instructions for these towels in Best of Handwoven: Yarn Series—A Dozen Projects in 8/2 Cotton .

Woven at 20 epi (double in a 10 dpi reed) on a 4 shaft, 20” loom. Kit available only in earthtone colors shown in photo.

Designed by Joanne Tallarovic,a leading ripsmatta expert.
