Notes: 

  I was inspired by the idea to combine the  two different drafts Rep and Tabby/ Rosepath. And I wanted to weave the hangings for the towels in one step, by weaving the Repborder.

 For one Towel I used wet, handspun Linen.

The good thing of the repborder was, that I  had no need to use a temple.

Very nice -- thanks for posting these pictures.  I'm wondering whether the edging was sewn on as you wove, or after removal from the loom, or after wet finishing both towels and bands?

Bonnie.

Hi Bonnie, the rep-edges were

Hi Bonnie,

the rep-edges were also woven together with the towelfabric and not sewn on later. I wove only  a longer border to create the hanger later when I sew the towels

.

 This was the interesting part to combine  a draft like rep, wich shows the warp floats with a draft like rosepath wich shows the weft floats , or with balanced tabby.

Later, the long edges were sutured.

 I hope the pictures do explain better, what I have done.

Kristina

These look great, I have the Winnie Poulsen towels with the repp border centered on the towels 'in line' here for my next project. But first I have to find time to finish the upholstry that's on there now!

These are very interesting.  I am weaving a version of the Winnie Poulsen towels right now and am enjoying it very much.  Thanks for sharing.  I'll try to upload photos when finished.

Great project!

That is great, Kristina. I have experimented, too, with various ways of making hanging tabs during the weaving process, and it is good to see new possibilities. They look lovely! And you have your own little label as well! I have just started using things like that, too. I'll post some soon.

intriguing

These are really lovely. I love the way the border is so well integrated into the towel.

It looks as if 2 weft picks go through the same shed in the rep border. And the sett is different in the border than in the main section. Is that right? I'm considering doing the same thing in my pin weaving. It's lovely to see such a clear example. Thanks!

Thank you Ellen and Ruth!

 Yes Ellen , I have now some little labels with the title " handmade by Kristina Krenzer", so I can use them for knittings and weavings.

 

Ruth , you are right. I addet the draft to the project description. So you can see that always two wefts are going thru ( and depending on rosepath sometimes three wefts)
