What Has Sheepie Been Weaving?
Three dishtowels, cotton chenille. The pattern may look vaguely familiar. It's a variation on the cover project of the November/December Handwoven. Same warp on all three. different weft on each: green, blue, mauve (top to bottom).
I left out the pick up stick patter.
Another set of 3 dish towels these in cotton, plain spun for the warp, a thick and thin for the weft.
I don't know if the embiggen feature will show it, but there's an almost "argyle" (diamond) pattern formed by the thick parts of the weft.
The yarn is Filatura Lanarota Alpaca DK Splash from Smiley's. It's not on their site any longer. Don't bother to look. It's well-aged and yes, I am stash busting.
I probably have enough of this colorway to make a second scarf if I use a solid for the warp or weft. Or I might knit a beanie to match.
