Cottolin Makes a Satisfying Background for Monksbelt

This is a monksbelt piece woven by Jan Mostrom woven entirely in cottolin – warp, background weft, and pattern weft.  The sett is 24 epi.  Jan suggested that for someone completely new to the technique, using cottolin can be satisfying.  “It’s more fogiving than linen,” she noted.  With the cottolin warp and weft you could also use prydvev yarn (a thinnish Norwegian wool yarn) for the pattern.
