Scarf on the Rigid Heddle Loom

I still have to twist the fringe as I hate fluffy chunky fringe but it is done and off the loom. I managed to keep all the edges straight so that the width of the scarf is the same all the way along too. My selvedges are pretty neat as well.

It measures 9.5 x 69 inches without the fringe. It might draw up a bit after washing, but I am quite pleased.

This is 75% wool and 25% nylon yarn, but it’s a sport weight so fairly fine and not chunky like worsted weight yarns. I like it–don’t think I’ve ever had a scarf like this. The yarn is Patons Kroy Jacquard in a colourway called Summer Moss Jacquard. This is my second woven project with Kroy yarn and it never gave me a bit of trouble, really lovely to work with in the loom.

It took me two days to make (but I was really pushing it) and then twisting and tying the fringe will probably take another two days as it’s quite tedious.

That’s why Hockey Night in Canada is on Saturday night, so women can fringe their scarves. It’s a known fact.

Oh, and I got half of it done before the game. Always good to be ahead of the game.
