This project is geared to the beginner/novice rigid heddle weaver who is comfortable warping and weaving in a single colour, but would like to challenge themselves by using two colours, thinner yarn, and following a pattern. This PDF download is 6 pages long and includes 3 colours images outlining the process. There are also instructions on how to substitute yarns of different gauges/thicknesses, a primer on how to read weaving drafts, and a glossary of weaving terms.
Please note that you are not purchasing a finished scarf but a pattern to design and make your own!
As professional artist and handweaver, my goal is to develop weaving patterns that engage people in their own creativity and increase their skills and confidence through simple projects. Making beautiful woven textiles does NOT have to be challenging!
