I chose the pattern Butterflies in Clover from the Sept./Oct. 2014 issue of Handwoven because is was a single shuttle weave with a fairly simple treadling. I was able to weave four towels and a couple short dishrags from the five yard warp. I used 8/2 cotton. The pattern called for thinner yarn, and I think it would be better than the 8/2 because there are a few floats that are a bit longer than I care to have due to the chance of snagging the yarn.
After drying, I dampen the towels and stretch them again right before pressing with my Steam Fast steam press. The press is a great time saver.
I then turn the hems and steam press before stitching on the sewing machine. After sewing, the towels get another final press.
