Zig Zag Twill Scarf
Designed by Christine Tsai
This warm and cozy scarf is woven on a rosepath (extended point twill) threading with two alternating stripes of color in the warp. Variations of 2/2 twill and plain weave in the treadling create a striking elongated zig zag pattern and slightly longer warp floats which enhance the softness of the alpaca yarn. Order a kit.
I made several scarves for Christmas- in Bamboo, Tencel, and Alpaca Silk. All wove wonderfully, and the drape is lovely. Perfect present!! This will be my to go to scarf draft! Thank you.
I ordered the draft and alpaca (Ode) yarn for this scarf and I couldn't be more pleased. The alpaca yarn weaves beautifully. I had enough yarn for two scarves- one for my husband and another for someone to receive as a gift if I can ever part from it. I was so inspired by the simple draft with the color combination, I read the designer's (Christine Tsai) notes and ordered the book (Designing Woven Fabrics by Janet Phillips) which was the source of Christine's inspiration.
This pattern was easy to use and my scarf turned out just like the one in the picture! It was so rewarding to see my work turn out well. Thanks for great instructions.
