It's a little warm to enjoy such a cold-weather scarf, but winter will be here before we know it!
This scarf is for my hubby's cousin Chris. He is a big and tall guy, so I made this warp extra long (3 yards) so he would feel toasty warm and have plenty of extra room to wrap it around his neck a few times!
I let him do all the picking of colors and design, however, I saw this combination WAY before he put it together! This is EXACTLY what I had in mind for him. It's never ceases to amaze me that there is a weave for everyone, and if you know them well enough, you can pinpoint it before them!
I did the very last little segment with 20/2 in plain weave as an experiment. It gives me some good ideas of something I would like to work with in the future... as if my list wasn't big enough as it is!
This would have made a very fun towel, too:
Next up, hemming! I have a little bit of a back-log on my hemming!
Here is my latest obsession on Pinterest! I feel entranced by this pattern!
Here it is up close:
A word of warning though, make sure to follow the pattern exactly! Note the treadling is 1-7, and not 1-8 like one might think! You get an extra floating section when you treadle 1-8. Here is a comparison picture of the right (top-dark blue) and wrong (bottom-light green) treadling patterns:
As you can see in this picture, the hat is the original design (top) and the scarf is the mimicked design (bottom):
My cousin wanted the designs to look similar, but wanted the hounds tooth design to be a little bit smaller. Overall, it's a little bit more green than I expected it to be, but I'm just glad it's done!! It also ended up being the perfect width after I redid the sett. It is now 6.5".
