I have used the pattern to make two scarves. One… everyone who sees them thinks that the pattern is immensely intricate. One I changed weft colour every block of twill, the other every three. Each person got a unique scarf, so are more than happy. Lovely!
I used this pattern for inspiration and made a block scarf from Alpaca with it. Easy to follow
I love this pattern, I am new to 4 shaft weaving and I was amazed at how complex this looks but how easy it was to weave. Thanks for the inspiration
I wove a version of this scarf while on a loom in an art studio and got multiple compliments on the yarn and pattern! I kept the pattern to a gray (cloud) warp and dark green (forest) weft instead of the alternating multiple colors. This was for my husband so I shortened the dimensions to 14"W x 65"L with a 2" twisted fringe. With these dimensions I found out that I had enough yarn left over to swap the warp/weft colors and weave a second scarf with just two cones.
This was my first time weaving with alpaca yarn so I'll pass along a few things I learned along the way:
1. Instead of beating the yarn, think of it as placing the yarn. It's a very different experience from weaving with cotton or wool and weaving with alpaca requires a greater level of control for weft placement
2. Measure the length of your blocks as you progress to keep it accurate and consistent
3. The finishing wash process will bring your pattern and the final structure to life. I found a couple of helpful finishing videos on youtube
