Christmas log cabin towels

This is dishtowel was inspired by candy canes.

Christmas log cabin towels

I had just recently purchased a small 4 harness loom and was anxious to try it out. Since Christmas was coming, this was the way to do it. This pattern is commonly referred to as log cabin and is a color and weave effect.

The warp and the weft for this towel is a cotton flake. The colors are Christmas red and snowflake white (what else for Christmas!)

Below is a close up view of the weave structure. This is a simple plain weave. The pattern requires 2 harnesses, and the sett is 18 e.p.i.
