Fancy Pants Towels Kit
This kit makes the Fancy Pants Towels. It includes 3 cones of 8/2 unmercerized cottonand a digital download of the pattern. For more towels and color variety, add in additional cones of 8//2 cotton (link below).
These towels are a favorite of mine, and the contrasting hems add an element of playfulness and fun to the towels. They use a very simple treading so that you can play with color and enjoy the weaving.
