Finished woven scarf
This is the latest weaving finished project.
This was woven on a frame loom using chopsticks to hold the ends for weaving. The goal was to produce a usable scarf without the usual 15 inches of warp wasted on the loom that I get with a rigid heddle loom.
This piece was supposed to be 48" by 4". I measured the warp at 48" but the warp shrank a little during weaving, so it finished at 44" long.
The weft spacing is uneven, the edges are uneven, and the ends are not terribly pretty. The weave was more warp faced than plain weave. But it showed me that I can make a scarf on a frame loom without all the waste. Now I have to learn how to make the next one pretty.
Edited to add: This was made with acrylic yarn from the Vanna White products, with tan yarn for warp and variegated tan/blue for weft.
Have a good day!
