My journey into the world of weaving

Scarves off the loom and measured!


They are 7 inches in width and each 68 inches in length! Fringe will be 7.5 inches. I had 28 inches total in loom waste. Interestingly, only about 5 inches at the front beam so the bulk was at the back beam.

This picture shows some interesting pattern stuff. I wove them a little differently but my fate was really cast with weft yarn and how it differentiated. The browns really do show, almost like stripes, in the scarf on right. More muted and contained in the scarf on the left.


They feel a little stiff but I think a wet finish will help with that. Next, fringe the ends and wash. Then trim off all loose ends.

Next project: angora wool blends and I don’t have a pattern in mind yet.

  1. Oh they look beautiful!!! I really like the way that the pattern shows the stripes differently in each of the scarves. 🙂

  2. Susan, they’re great. Very eye catching.

  3. They were fun to weave! I loved the changing weft!
