Green waffle towel with twill bands, similar to the ones shown in Handwoven May/June 2012
Rhonda mentioned about not having enough treadles to weave both waffle and twill on a four shaft loom and how she could set up a four shaft waffle weave on her 8 shaft loom and have plenty of treadles.
Well, here is another option:
Instead of using a 2:2 twill for the bands, you can use a 1:3 twill such as that shown in the photo at the top of this post. Now the waffle I'm using in the above towel is not the standard point twill threading but you get the idea, I hope. :)
