Kelly Colored Scarf
This cool DIY craft by Michael Sellick for The Crochet Crowd is a Kelly Colored Scarf made on a weaving loom. For those that do not know how to loom a scarf, this handmade craft is not difficult to make. Once you have invested in the materials, your scarf will come naturally. Like the green grasses of Ireland, your wearable craft will remind you of the misty lochs and bogs as you stare out into the distance, reminiscing about voyages past.
- 10" or 15" Schacht Weaving Loom
- 1 Ball of Liberty Wool, Classic Elite Yarn
- 1 Hank of Manos del Uruguay - Maxima, Kettle Dyed.
Feed Machine (Warp) with the entire ball of Liberty Wool. This will create the width of 5.5". This yarn is used going in the vertical direction and expands the entire length of the scarf.
The warp length is 95" from the warping peg to the back beam.
Using Manos del Urrguay, weave back and forth for the entire length. You will not use the entire skien
Remove from loom and tie groups of vertical strings together in an overhand tie knot.
- To maintain transition effect of the yarn, you must take the yarn from the Manos del Uruguay skein, form a smaller ball that you believe will fit onto the stick shuttle. Once you think you have the right amount, wrap the smaller ball of yarn onto the stick shuttle. If you wrap transitional type of yarn directly onto the stick shuttle from the yarn ball, it will reverse your yarn transition to be backwards. It will cause your yarn transition to be out of order and your project will not have a soft flowing transition of colours.
