Chenille and Shadow Weave are perfect partners!

The relative thickness and velvety texture of chenille yarns give scale and drama to the pinstripes and outlines of shadow weave designs.

This kit provides the warp length to make three scarves so you can experiment with different treadling orders. You won't want to stop with only three!

Together, chenille and shadow weave make a luxurious, soft, drapable scarf with infinite potential for pattern.

Equipment: 4 shaft loom with 8" weaving width or an 8-shaft loom with 6" weaving width; an 8-dent reed and 2 shuttles.

Finished sizes: after washing: Three scarves 6 1/2" x 73" (4-shaft scarves) or 4 7/8" x 73" (8-shaft scarves) plus 4-5" fringe at each end.

Instructions needed:  This project is featured in Handwoven Jan/Feb 2012 from Long Thread Media.  Be sure to order this Handwoven magazine if you don't already have this issue.
