Another Woven Scarf

Aha, now that my friend has received this as a gift I can post pictures of it.

This is a scarf I made for a gentleman friend in the UK, and it is done with three skeins of Knit Picks Felici yarn in the colourway Sorcery. This is a very soft yarn with stripes. The finished measurement after washing was 6.5 x 64 inches, so a nice size for wrapping and warmth.

86 ends
12.5 dent heddle
15 picks per inch
90 inch warp

I couldn’t achieve a balanced weave but it made a nice fabric with a good drape for around the neck. The fringe is extra long at 6.5 inches but I thought that extravagance was something my friend could pull off; he’s quite stylish. One of those people who can throw on a scarf and look like they bought an ensemble at Harrods.
