Simple Woven Scarf – Success!

December 19, 2012By

It’s official. I love my loom.

Here’s my first project – finished, washed, and ready for its close up:

First Weaving Project - Scarf

Project: Simple woven scarf

Yarn: One hank of Socks that Rock Lightweight in Zein colorway

Details: Kromski Harp rigid heddle loom, 10-dent heddle, 72 ends, 90” warp length. I worked until I ran out of yarn, about 56” total before washing.

Is it perfect? Not by a long shot. Do I care? Not in the least. Mr. M has already claimed this as his own, and has worn it on several occasions.

Woven Scarf Detail

I’m amazed at the way this yarn worked up. Look at those stripes! Variegated yarns can be troublesome to knit with, because they tend to pool or flash. Some folks like this, I am not a fan. Weaving with these yarns, though, is a whole different story. I can’t wait to dig through my stash and pull out a few variegated hanks that I’ve avoided, just to see what happens when I weave them up.

Weaving Project #1 – Success! Now on to the next one.

  1. It looks great! It makes me want to get a loom. I have lots of spare yarn that would look great woven.

    I love it, Susan! You did such a great job! It seriously looks like something you’d pick up off the shelf at Macy’s. :)
