I also tried out slim boat shuttles with this, since the yarns were smaller than my usual knitting yarn, and could be easily wound on a bobbin.
They really worked just fine (except in that lower float shed where they did have a tendency to dive right down through those big spaces if I wasn't careful).
Worth using these again (so much faster to wind than a stick shuttle!).
Then 2 shots of plain old plain weave with the 3/2 cotton alone.
The pattern is not too difficult - I'd even say it was lots of fun! And it comes out looking really fine, and now I have 2 really fun and functional dish towels!
