Naturally Fabulous Woven Scarf
These instructions are really simple as this is the combination of only two yarn balls. Approximate cost of this scarf is about $15. The yarn is self striping itself and transitioning on its own. Do not change the directions as the vertical direction that you will feed onto the machine must be the Liberty Wool due to strength and durability. The Liberty Wool will not be enough to cross back and forth for the duration of this scarf.
This can be completed on a 10″ or 15″ table top Weaving Loom by Schacht. The scarf is 4.0″ wide by 77″ long without the tassels.
1 – 10″ or 15″ Schacht Weaving Loom
1 – Ball of Liberty Wool, Classic Elite Yarn
1 – Ball of Red Heart Super Saver Fleck
- Feed Machine (Warp) with the entire ball of Liberty Wool. This will create the width of 5.5″. This yarn is used going in the vertical direction and expands the entire length of the scarf. The warp length is 95″ from the warping peg to the back beam.
- Using Red Heart Super Saver Fleck, weave back and forth for the entire length. You will not use the entire skien
- 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 Red Heart Super Saver Ball, 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.
I am not affiliated to Schacht nor is this a paid sponsors. I simply like using this machine and sharing some patterns that I have made on this machine.
