Swedish lace towels

I took a lace weaves workshop earlier this month and fell in love with lace weaves so I just had to weave some towels. I designed these towels using a profile draft from an old book as inspiration and I’m so happy with how they turned out! I wanted to include one in @geekgirl’s Santa’s Sack so I designed, wove, and finished them in record speed.

Here’s a picture of the small towel that shows the symmetry. The larger towels are repeated

They’re so pretty and soft, I’m going to have to design some more!
