Cozy Merino Rigid Heddle Scarf 

This oh-so-simple scarf by Sarah Resnick is made with 3 skeins of soft and cozy Merino Wool Weaving Yarn. Three shades of blue create a gradation of color through stripes in the warp and weft. This scarf is designed to be woven on a rigid heddle loom but can also be made on a floor or table loom. 

If you are just getting started with weaving this an ideal project to dive into! For more information on choosing a rigid heddle loom, download our free guide here: Guide to Choosing and Using your First Rigid Heddle Loom. See all the project details below and choose a kit to get started.

I think where you have “warp length” you have 3’ – which is only 3 feet should it be 3 yards or more? since we need 80" inches for the scarf and 10" on either end for the fringe plus extra for tie up and waste? I’m new to this so I’m just checking?
thanks
