Duet Skip Dent Scarf 

A light and airy scarf for warmer days woven with our Duet Cotton/Linen Yarn. The subtle spaces in the warp come from a simple technique called "skip dent", where a dent or two is skipped throughout the reed as you are threading. The variations in density create a lacy, textured cloth. 

Designed for GIST: Yarn & Fiber by Sarah Resnick.

Weaving & Finishing 

Wind a warp with Duet Cotton/Linen Weaving Yarn with a total of 80 ends. 

For a rigid heddle loom complete the following threading sequence: 

  • Thread 2"
  • Skip 1 slot and 1 hole
  • Thread 2"
  • Skip 1 slot and 1 hole
  • Thread 2" 
  • Skip 1 slot and 1 hole
  • Thread 2" 

For a table or floor loom complete the following threading sequence at the reed: 

  • Thread 2" 
  • Skip 2 dents 
  • Thread 2" 
  • Skip 2 dents
  • Thread 2"
  • Skip 2 dents

As you are weaving, Sarah recommends beating lightly so that the weft is evenly spaced with the warp (about 10 picks per inch). Once you have finished weaving the full length of your warp, hand wash, air dry, and iron the fabric. Twist the fringe in groups of 8 ends and trim to about 4". 

About

Sarah Resnick is the founder of GIST: Yarn & Fiber, and the host of the Weave podcast. She learned how to weave in Toronto in 2009, and was hauling a Craigslist loom up to her apartment two months later...she's never looked back since! Other parts of her fiber journey included selling handwoven baby wraps, helping to launch a sewing factory in Fall River, Massachusetts, and creating Jewish ritual textiles for people celebrating life cycle events. The thread that winds through everything she does is a passion for building systems that directly support farmers, manufacturers, and artists to bring value and beauty into the world.
