Valentine Houndstooth Scarf

What are you most proud of? This is the first scarf I have woven using my own hand-dyed yarn. I dyed the pink and it came out just the way I wanted it to. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even if you are a beginning weaver you can do houndstooth! It just looks complicated - it's really not. Just alternate your two colors using two warp threads and then weave two picks of each color for your weft. Easy peasy!

You Can Make This

Flickertail made Valentine Houndstooth Scarf with:

Q&A with Flickertail

BrenBoone asked:
I'm a knitter not a weaver. But this makes me want to learn. This is beautiful. And theres just something about houndstooth that catches the eye.
Flickertail answered:
Thank you! I was a knitter before I was a weaver, and I have to admit that my knitting has taken a back burner to my weaving! I am not a fast knitter so for me weaving is so satisfying as I can weave a scarf in probably a third of the time it would take to knit it. I started with a rigid heddle loom - the Schacht Cricket is a great starter loom, and you can get one for less than $150. Go for it!
