The charcoal warp that I put on my four shaft Druva floor loom measured 4.5 metres. After completing the pistachio chevron scarf I cut it off the loom so I could re-tension the warp, something that was sorely needed.
I did my best to apply the lessons of the pistachio scarf to the cappuccino scarf, in particular maintaining an even and light beat, and keeping a close eye on the width of the weave. The effort paid off and I am much happier with this weaving.
In addition to the technique changes, I did 8 picks of charcoal plain weave at the start and finish of the scarf, changed the pattern and used hemstitch in place of overhand knots for the fringe.
The cappuccino scarf measures 132cm by 23cm after wet finishing. That’s 52 inches by 9 1/4 inches for those of you who think in those terms.
I had a bit of warp left after completing the cappuccino scarf so I had a play with pebble weave and made a little table runner. It’s a 9 1/2 inch square and I rather like it but calling it a runner seems a bit over the top for such a small item. Any suggestions? What would you describe it as?
