Skip Dent Scarf
A light and airy scarf. The subtle spaces in the warp come from a simple technique called skip dent, in which a dent or two is skipped throughout the reed as you are threading. Order a kit.
As others have noted, the pattern all but disappeared after wet finishing. The cotton linen blend is too stiff; no drape at all in the finished product. Sort of like wearing a paper towel. Very disappointed.
Skipped Dents is one of my favourite patterns. For a wider skipped area, I have skipped up to 3 dent/holes three times, for 3 equally spaced "columns"
Works well with plain weave, brooks bouquet and leno.
Love this yarn and the pattern/instructions were easy for this newbie! Proud and delighted! Love Gist!
I changed the patten a litle, by inserting sticks (the same witdh as the wooden areas), to make a wrap that was even lighter. We will see what happens when I finish and remove the sticks....I am always experimenting when I weave something!
The skips were very visible on the loom but barely visible after finishing. If I make it again I’d leave more space between the dents or let the scarf soak without agitating. That said, I love my scarf. The rust color in the Duet yarn is so beautiful and the width and length are perfect for a summer scarf.
