Rigid Heddle Playing with Blocks Waffle Weave Towels
Get inspired using color and texture on your rigid heddle loom!
Waffle weave is the ideal weave structure for kitchen towels with its super absorbent abilities.
Weaving texture on your rigid heddle loom is very easy to achieve with just one pick up stick.
Mix color blocks with waffle weave to get something new and different. These towels are woven with our Aurora Earth 8/2 cotton in Mint, Empire and Duck. The three colors used are of the same value but also have enough contrast to make the color block squares prominently seen throughout the towels.
You will need a 12 dent heddle with 21.33” weaving width.
Finished Size: 16 1/2" x 24 1/2" hemmed per towel
This project is an excellent way to explore color and texture on your rigid heddle loom!
