This is beautiful! I love the colors! Does the course teach you how to get the colors to pool like that? I just bought the course but haven't taken it yet.

I'm so sorry for the delay in responding to your message! (Haven't had time to weave.) Thanks so much for your kind words. Please see my comment in this thread for how to pool. And for what it's worth, I'm sure there are better explanations on Ravelry.com, which is where I learned of this technique.

I'd also like to know how you warped to get the colors to pool! Your scarf is beautiful!

Thank you so much! I gave it to my mother, who couldn't believe that it was possible to make such a thing. Behold the power of the mighty rigid heddle loom!

Is there a secret to this? Do share! :)

Oh, dear ... I invented a knitting counter and had to put weaving on the back burner, so I haven't checked Craftsy. I'm so sorry, everyone! And thanks for the lovely comments. The course didn't teach me how to do this, but it's not hard. When you're warping the loom, just adjust the length of the warps until the colors match up. I laid out the skein of yarn, estimated the repeat, put the warping peg about that distance away, and then started my warp. If the colors didn't lay alongside each other at first, I just kept moving the loom until the distance between the loom and the warping peg made the colors pool. They don't do it perfectly, because of the dying process, but that's what makes it look like Ikat. I hope this helps! (Not every yarn does this reliably, but Malabrigo Sock works great. So does Wollmeise, I'm told.)
