March TotM - Update: Weaving the Overshot Borders
I have the borders going now. I used 6-strand cotton embroidery floss, and it comes in so many colors I couldn't resist using a bunch of different greens.
Perusing the Hayes pattern book, I see suggestions for either 10/2 or 5/2 cotton as a pattern weft when the ground is set at 30 epi, so I'm going to try those on the other towels.
I put the small border close to one hem. The large design will be farther from the opposite hem, to be more centered when the towel is hanging up on a towel rack.
