Finished Log Cabin Scarf


Here is the finished log cabin scarf! (click picture for larger image)

I hand washed it in lukewarm water with Woolite soap to set the wool and to full it a little bit. I gently squeezed the fabric in the soapy water for about 15 minutes, then rinsed it through two changes of lukewarm water. I was surprise how cloudy the water became, I think there is some sizing or starch in the wool yarn.

I squeezed out the water, do not wring, then rolled it in a towel to absorb most of the moisture, then remove from towel. drape the damp scarf over the back of a chair and let it sit overnight. Trim off the extra bits of yarn and the tips of the fringe. It's finished!

Many thanks to Claudia at Weavolution.com for suggesting this pattern for a Weave-A-Long group weaving project.

Now on to the next one!
Have a good day!
