New Favorite Scarf

I warped my loom at the end of winter and would weave a bit here and there when I had time. It wasn’t a project that I needed immediately so I took my sweet time getting it finished. After all, who needs a wool scarf in the middle of summer? Not me.

Well. It’s done now and I immediately want another.

I used 2 skeins of Spunky Eclectic Panda Sock yarn in the colorway “Brass to Sass”.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before but this is my favorite yarn to weave with on the rigid heddle to make luscious garments. I’ve used it a bunch in our weave club and also for my own projects.

Ashford 16 inch Rigid Heddle loom
10 Dent
128 ends
3 yard warp

Finished Scarf is 84 inches long (not including fringe) and 11 inches wide.
The fringe is about 12 inches long on each end. SO MUCH FRINGE

I didn’t use all of the yarn I had. Most of one skein went into the warp but there is about 60-80 yards left of the skein I was using for the weft.  So if you plan on making a sock yarn scarf like this I would still get 2 skeins of sock yarn just for safety’s sake. Overall my estimate is that it used about 800 yards of fingering weight.

    Beautiful! I need one. But I’m a newbie and need help to warp my loom again…

  2. Thanks for sharing your technical details – you got a good result. My last scarf used 50g of yarn for the weft (the warp was a different yarn) That’s one ball so I’m using that as a rule of thumb for warp yarn estimates on scarves and runners.
