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.

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:
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".
