Danish Rosette Towels Pattern by Elizabeth Hill

  • Equipment: 8-shaft loom, 21" weaving width; 12-dent reed; 3 shuttles; 4 bobbins
  • Warp Length: 446 ends 3½ yd long (includes 2 floating selvedges; allows 9" for take-up, 27" for loom waste).
  • Setts: Warp: 22 epi (2-2-2-2-2-1/ dent in a 12-dent reed). Weft: 23 ppi; 26 ppi for plain-weave hems.

22/2 and 16/2 Cottolin Yarn 
from Eugene Textiles Center

 

  • 22/2 Cottolin in Chocolate, 1426 yd.
  • 22/2 Cottolin in Orange, 910 yd.
  • 22/2 Cottolin in Magenta, 564 yd.
  • 16/2 Cottolin in Brun Chocolate, 120 yd.

Cottolin is a nice blend--a little linen for high absorbency but enough cotton for some stretch in the warp. The resulting fabric is so easy to care for, it is often used for towels, placemats, or clothing because it can stand up to repeated washing.
