This week's free weaving pattern by Deborah Held is the perfect summer scarf or cowl - a simple tabby weave that can be woven on a rigid heddle loom or a floor loom. Grab up to 7 colors of 8/2 un-mercerized cotton from your stash (or buy some!) and start playing. Don't stress about picking colors - go with your gut, or choose from a few color combos I recommend below. Find all the geeky weaver details after the photos!
Debbie writes: "The scarf is woven in a balanced plain weave, centered at 7 inches in width, and with a total of 84 (single) ends. In this instance, more is more. I used seven different colors in a relatively narrow piece. (I started with five, but wasn’t getting the look I was after and added in two more.)
