Warping
Warp the loom (see page 00), following the specicationsat left.
Weaving
Weave an inch or two of header to spread the warp ends(see page 00).Leave a 30” weft tail at the selvedge to use for hemstitchinglater, then using a soft beat, weave a few inches with weftyarn. Thread the weft tail on a tapestry needle and use it tohemstitch (see page 00) around two warps and weft at thestarting end of the scarf. Continue to weave until the scarf measures 60”. Cut the weft, leaving a 30” tail. Thread thetail on a tapestry needle and use it to hemstitch as before.
Finishing
Remove the fabric from the loom (see page 00), preservingthe loom waste for fringe. Remove the scrap yarn in theheader.Handwash in lukewarm water with mild soap, rinse. Roll ina towel and squeeze out excess water. Lay at to dry. Trimthe fringe to 6” using a rotary cutter on a self-healing mat.
 ck 
to weaving with variegated yarns is usethem in such a way as to bring out their beauty withoutcombining too many colors so that end up lookingmuddy. One trick is to grab a skein of beautifullyvariegated yarn and nd a coordinating solid that willcomplement the variegated colorway, as in this scarf of subtle beauty. For a different look, use the solid colorin the warp and weave with the variegated. Simplehemstitching allows beauty of the variegated yarn toshow in the fringe.
