Open Window ScarfDesigned by Amanda Wood
This monochromatic scarf is woven in plain weave using a pick-up stick to create pattern with warp and weft floats. The windowpane design throughout the scarf resembles lace and adds to the airy texture of the cloth. Designed with small rigid heddle looms in mind, this project is under 10” wide and only requires one cone of Duet Cotton/Linen to complete. Order a kit.
This was a fun project to weave, with a little extra detail using a pick-up stick. It is an airy weave, but it should be good for a summer scarf.
I used the yellow Duet yarn and it looks lovely. A reasonably easy project.
The lace pattern framed in plain weave makes this scarf special. It’s not difficult to weave, and could be doubled in width to make a larger scarf or shawl. I love the color of the shawl as woven, and I can visualize it woven in other colors as well. My loom is an 8 shaft floor loom, and the pattern was simple to adapt to it.
…. But I haven’t warped the loom as I stumbled and fell and broken both wrists.
