Weaving & Finishing

  • Yarn A - 4 ends* 
  • Yarn B - 16 ends 
  • Repeat from * 11 times
  • Yarn A - 4 ends 

Weft and Treadling Order: Begin and end the scarf with hemstitch. This scarf is made up of 3 sections. Measure each section in the loom when it is not under tension for the most accurate measurement. 

  • Section 1: 20" of tabby with Yarn A
  • Section 2: 41" of pattern with Yarn A (tabby weft) and Yarn C (pattern weft) 
  • Section 3: 20" of tabby with Yarn A

    Pattern Section: Follow the treadling order and draft below.

    IMPORTANT: Both shuttles should start from the LEFT side of your loom.Draw in will be more noticeable in the pattern section, which is normal and part of the design. Make sure to interlock the thick and thin weft at the selvedges as you are weaving. (See photo).

    • Treadle 1 (tabby weft, shuttle starting from the left side)*
    • Treadle 6 (pattern weft, shuttle starting from the left side)
    • Treadle 2 (tabby) 
    • Treadle 6 (pattern)
    • Treadle 1 (tabby)
    • Treadle 5 (pattern)
    • Treadle 2 (tabby)
    • Treadle 5 (pattern)
    • Treadle 1 (tabby)
    • Treadle 4 (pattern)
    • Treadle 2 (tabby)
    • Treadle 4 (pattern)
    • Treadle 1 (tabby)
    • Treadle 3 (pattern)
    • Treadle 2 (tabby)
    • Treadle 3 (pattern)
    • Repeat from * until you have woven 41" of pattern 

    Note: The draft shows tabby picks as well as pattern picks for clarity. The treadling sequence on this draft is to show the different sections of the scarf. Reference the weft and treadling order written above as you weave.

    Finishing: In loom the scarf should measure approximately 14" wide in tabby sections and 12" wide in pattern section by 81" long. Wet finish the scarf by hand using warm water and mild soap. Gently agitate the fibers to lightly full the wool in the pattern section of the scarf. Rinse and roll up in a towel to absorb excess water. Lay flat to dry. Press with a warm iron. Trim fringe to 3" on each side. Note: when washing this scarf in the future use cold water to prevent any further felting.
