Wave Scarf 

*Please note, we no longer carry this yarn, but you are welcome to use this pattern as inspiration!*

Strong, washable, and super soft, this yarn is the perfect (and affordable) alternative to silk. Sarah designed this beautiful weaving project using three cones in complementing colors to create a soft gradient. Wind a warp long enough for three scarves and try weaving each scarf using a different weft color. This is a fun way to experiment with how different weft colors affect the same warp. See all the project details below and purchase a kit to get started! 


Warp & Weft:3 cones of 8/2 weaving yarn
