Rigid Heddle Weaving »
InstructionsI am brand new to weaving and so curious to learn what results I will get, so I changed-up the warp a little and used 8 ends of solid, 8 ends of multi-colored 3 times, then ended with 8 ends solid (56 ends total).

Type of item: Clothing
I had Patons Classic Wool on hand in Rosewood (multi-colored) and Plum Heather (more solid color), 100g each. It is a "4" or medium weight yarn. (I have leftover yarn, too, for another project!)
What was your inspiration?
I was inspired by the flowering trees that are blooming early this Spring. A pretty scarf is a welcome friend on blustery and still chilly March days.
What are you most proud of?
Weaving is something I have wanted to learn since a young child. I finally did it, and can't wait to warp my next project. Practice, practice, practice!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try your loom in different positions until you find what is most comfortable with the repetitive movements you make in weaving.
