Jan Hudson wove 2 scarves on a whim, and I asked her to make the April Fools Day post.
I used a variegated rayon knitting yarn as warp on the orange and blue scarf. The weft is a very thin unidentified cotton yarn I had in my stash but sewing thread would work also.
The sett was “guesstimated” at 5 epi. I wove 3 pics, then placed a 2 cm spacer cardboard in the shed, and wove 3 more pics, repeating the process to the end of the scarf!
The technique is used in Guatemala on textiles made on a backstrap loom. This time I wove a few more pics before leaving the spaces.
It’s only plain weave, so only 2 shafts are required! Peggy adds: So what if the ends don’t end up the same length!
