How to Weave a Twill Scarf
A shimmering scarf in
advancing point twill By Virginia West
Tencel and twill are perfect partners for showing off color, shine, and drape. You’re sure to sparkle in this unique and elegant scarf!
How to Weave a Shawl
Cashmere/silk and bamboo shawl By Carry Wilcox
Cashmere is often used by knitters for lace
sweaters or lightweight shawls. It is amazing
to think that it has an insulating quality greater
than sheep’s wool. To showcase such a special yarn, Carry used a draft
designed by Barbara Walker that features a
narrow band of overshot as a supplementary warp
on a ground cloth of bamboo, another soft yarn
that compliments the cashmere/silk.
