Wave Scarf 

Strong, washable, and super soft, Tencel is the perfect (and affordable) alternative to silk. Sarah designed this beautiful weaving project using three cones of our 8/2 Tencel Weaving Yarn 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! 

Materials

Warp & Weft: 3 cones of 8/2 Tencel Weaving Yarn 

Kits: Each kit contains enough yarn to make 3 scarves that measure approximately 7" W x 68" L + 5" of fringe on each side.

Love the pattern. Do you have any pix of the other kit colors? Not a big green person so I would love to see one of the blue groupings.

Patricia, Glad you like it! Sorry, we just have photos of the green scarf woven currently. But the blues really do look beautiful together, you should try it :-)

Is there a rigid heddle pattern??

Sarah Resnick

Sarah Resnick said:

Hi Shelley,
This pattern needs at least 4 shafts to weave. This is a great rigid heddle scarf pattern: www.gistyarn.com/cozy-merino-scarf

Could you maybe do this with double heddles on a Regis heddle? Love all the colors.

I sent my message without proof reading. I meant Rigid Heddle:)

Hi Laura,
You could use this yarn for plain weave using two heddles on a rigid heddle loom! You wouldn’t be able to do the wavy twill part, but you could make a lovely scarf using tabby weave.
