Scarves for Men 2

Some of the scarves sent to Inspirit Gallery earlier this week in time for Field Days.
Woven in shadow weave based on a threading in "book of 8 shaft Patterns edited by Carol Strickler" but I used 16 shafts.  Woven in merino, cashmere, possum, silk at 20 epi. 
(Pics should be clearer if you click on them.)
Black and bottle green. 
 Navy and ecru was my favourite.
Brown and ecru.
For this one the brown is 2 ply but the ecru possum merino is a singles.  I wound them together on the warping reel, tied on to previous warp at the front of the reed and wound them through to the back beam.  Not a problem but if I'd stopped to think I might have realised that perhaps it wasn't the best choice for a warp thread.
Jenny at Inspirit Gallery is delighted with the design line.


  1. Perfect men's scarves Dianne. Just enough detail without being a girlie pattern - inspired!

    1. Thanks Alison. I did take your advice on board and wonder if they weren't too patterned. From a distance they look plain but up close the magic of shadow weave comes to the fore.

  2. Hi Dianne,
    I don't stop over very often, but when I do - I'm blown away. Your productivity AND the quality of what you produce boggle my mind (Or boggle me down as my wee daughter used to say:))

    1. Thanks, I really appreciate your comment. I seem to be bogged down with blanket weaving at present and not getting enough time for the finer work.
