Berry Fusion Tartan Scarf

These instructions for the Tartan Scarf are really simple as this is the combination of scrap yarn and one solid ball of Lion Brand Amazing Yarn. 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 what I mention below. The Lion Brand Amazing Yarn will not work in the vertical direction as the  yarn fibers come loose and snag onto each string. I wasted 1 entire ball during set up after I realized this. This can be completed on a 10″ or 15″ table top Weaving Loom by Schacht. The scarf is 8.5″ wide by 5 Feet Long without the tassels. The Lion Brand Amazing Yarn ball was used up going across. I didn’t want to add a second ball as the colour transition would not look consistent.

 

 

The Lion Brand Yarn Amazing Yarn gives this final look the jolt of elegance, softness and texture.

Materials:

10″ or 15″ Schacht Weaving Loom

Scrap Yarns Used in this order: Keep in mind that when the Heddle is set up, each slot will have two strings, one going through the middle of the heddle only and the other going through the entire up and down slot.

1 Ball of Lion Brand Amazing Yarn – Mauna Loa for the cross strings. Please note that I didn’t alter any of the colouring as you see. The yarn sudden transitions and slower transitions as you see in the scarf are as it comes off the yarn ball.

To maintain transition effect of the yarn, you must take the yarn from the Lion Brand Amazing 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.
