This scarf uses a “new to me” technique – multiple shots in the same shed, using floating selveges to keep the weft from pulling in too much. The design looked, on the computer a little like “hearts” — at least as close as a 2 shaft design could make, that is. And it’s apropos for the time of year, too!
Here it is on the loom; I’m not quite done weaving it yet. At this point, the pattern is not too evident; I think that it needs washing and fulling in order to be more evident.
I’ve noticed a few things in the process of weaving. With multiple shots in a single shed, it’s really hard to keep it balanced. I’m hoping that washing will help. I also think that I need a closer sett than I would otherwise — that will help compensate for the weft shots being closer.
I’ll post a picture once it’s finished, but it is still a very interesting design!
