Summertime Kitchen Towels

Designed and woven by Anu Bhatia

Woven on the Mighty Wolf Loom

People ask, “why kitchen towels?” As a weaver, I love to learn new weave structures and experiment with setts, yarns, and colors. If I warp my loom for a series of kitchen towels, I can explore new weave structures in variety of colors, setts, and/or textures on a smaller scale. The end results are functional items for me or for someone else! In this series of towels, I explored summer & winter in two color combinations and two yarn weights, adding four lovely towels to my kitchen. I would like to thank Yarn Barn of Kansas for providing quality yarns for this project.
