Just One Cone Does It!
This simple but beautiful, drapey, light-weight throw is woven using just one cone of our new Caterpillar Cotton yarn from Ashford!
What You'll Need
*Loom: Any 2-Shaft (Rigid heddle or other loom) 24" wide (or more)
*Reed: 7.5” dpi
*Warp & Weft:1@ cone Caterpillar Cotton, (743 yds/200 gm)

Since this is woven on a simple rigid heddle loom in plain weave requiring just 2-shafts, it can also be woven on any 4-shaft loom. The resulting fabric may be slightly shorter, depending on the amount of loom waste on your loom.
The finished size woven on a 24" wide rigid heddle loom is 23" x 72" (hemmed)
We've included the easy-to-weave pattern instructions with this yarn package.
