Woven Scarf Tutorial Sampler
These instructions are really simple for this woven scarf. You will combine yarns together for this. This can be completed on a 10″ or 15″ table top Weaving Loom by Schacht. The scarf is 5.5″ wide by 67″ Long without the tassels.
The Red Heart Shimmer yarn gives an artistic look of a hint of shimmering. The yarn transitions in the green and brown hues. It appears to be hand painted. The transitioning of the Lion Brand Amazing Yarn gives a unique look throughout the entire scarf. This sampler on video has been made into a smaller version for quick teaching but this is the instructions for a full length scarf.
You will use the entire ball of Lion Brand Amazing to achieve the maximum length.
- Feed Machine with Red Heart Shimmer to go approximately 8″ across the heddle. The warp length is 85″ from the warping peg to the back beam. You will not use the entire ball.
- Feed 4 Slots of Patons Cherry, Feed Next 4 Slots of Painted Desert, Feed Next 8 Slots of Shimmer Yarn, Feed Next 4 slots of Painted Desert and Feed final 4 slots of Patons Cherry.
- Using Lion Brand Amazing Yarn, weave back and forth for the entire length of the scarf.
- Remove from loom and tie groups of vertical strings together in an overhand tie knot.
To maintain transition effect of the yarn, you must take the yarn from the Bernat Mosaic Yarn, form a smaller ball that you believe will fit onto the stick shuttle. Once you think you have the right amount, wrap the smaller ball of yarn onto the stick shuttle. YOU MUST DO IT THIS WAY. If you wrap transitional type of yarn directly onto the stick shuttle from the yarn ball, it will reverse your yarn transition to be backwards. It will cause your yarn transition to be out of order and your project will not have a soft flowing transition of colours.
