The scarf is designed in thirds, the predominantly green center is the longest segment and is Alpine Meadow Dream Lake Sport. The outer thirds are woven predominantly with Alpine Meadow Yarns Periwinkle (blue). You can drape it in ways that emphasize one color or the other. Drape with the center green section starting in front of your throat and toss the Periwinkle blue tails back and around. Or let it hang loose around your neck and toss one side orer the opposite shoulder. It drapes very nicely in this light weight weave and works well as a three-season scarf, or four, depending upon where you live.

Wind the warp far enough onto the front beam to allow for your 6” of fringe before you start to weave.

Hemstitching on both ends is optional. If hemstitched, it is not necessary to knot the fringe.

If you are hemstitching the ends, leave a 30 inch tail of yarn on the left side of the first row if you are right handed (on the right side if you are left handed). Do the hemstitching at the beginning of the scarf after you have woven a couple of inches and do the hemstitching at the end of the scarf before you remove the scarf from the loom.

Instructions for hemstitching can be found in Jane Patrick's book entitled The Weaver's Idea Book: Creative Cloth on a Rigid Heddle Loom. We keep this book in stock and highly recommend it as well as her rigid heddle weaving DVDs. Online hemstitching instructions can also be found here: https://peggyosterkamp.com/peggys-weaving-ips-tips-hemstitching/

Width on the loom: 6.5 inches

Width off the loom: 6.25 inches (after washing 5.25 inches)

Finished Length: 63 inches after washing.  Overall length including fringe 75 inches.

 

FINISHING INSTRUCTIONS:

Remove the scarf from the loom. (Untie the knots instead of cutting them if you need the length for your fringe) If it has not been hemstitched, tie overhand knots in the fringe on both ends of the scarf up against the woven edges in bundles of 4 threads.

Wash the scarf by hand in warm water with a small amount of laundry soap or dishwashing soap. Swish it around gently to full the cloth. This makes the weaving tighter, and it gets a little shorter and narrower. Do not overdo this. Rinse gently in the same temperature water. Dry flat on a towel or hang on a hanger that has a towel over it to absorb the water. Allow to dry. Carefully trim the fringe to 6 inches or to desired length.

Steam press lightly on low temperature so as not to shrink the scarf. Allow scarf to dry. Trim the fringe to even it up if necessary.

Wear and enjoy your lovely new scarf!!!
