The phrase ‘What a Beauty’ applies to both the lovely pattern I have on the loom and the amazing day we had on theI’m absolutely in love with this six shaft pattern. I found the bones of the pattern on handweaving.net (one of Ralph Griswalds patterns) and then made the changes to make it function as a 6” wide scarf. Mr. Griswald calls this a 'Crackle Weave' but it really doesn't follow the rules, so I'm not sure how to categorize it. Unfortunately this photo doesn’t do the subtle sweet cream and rosy taupe colours of my yarn justice.
Island today. I honestly have never had a warmer February 1st in Canada!
The yarn is 2/8 tencel woven at 24 epi. I think that this photo taken between the layers as the fabric heads toward the cloth beam really shows the pattern off best. I’m really pleased with the design and am thrilled at how round the circle and cross have turned out. The pattern repeat is 154 picks and takes just over 4-1/2 inches to complete it.We grabbed our coats and headed out to explore the island and to play in the amazing sunshine.
So uplifting to see such a bold sign of spring!
