  • Warp: Approximately 600 yards of SweetGeorgia Yarns Tough Love Sock (425 yd / 388 m per 4 oz / 115 g skein; 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon) in a single or a variety of colourways (shown here in Trinket, Illusion, Evening, Shadow, Lichen, and Arbutus).
  • Weft: Approximately 600 yards of SweetGeorgia Yarns Merino Silk Lace (765 yd / 700 m per 3.5 oz / 100 g skein; 50% Fine Merino, 50% Silk) in a single colourway (shown here in Ultraviolet)


  • Dimensions: 13.5 inches (34 cm) wide x 60 inches (152 cm) long, not including fringe (approximately 5 inches of fringe at each end)


  • Equipment: rigid heddle loom with a minimum 15-inch (38 cm) weaving width, 12-dent reed
  • Tools: 1 shuttle, warping board, reed hook, heddle hook, tapestry needle, measuring tape
  • Weave Structure: plain weave
  • Warp Length: approximately 3 yards (274 cm) includes about 20 inches of loom waste
  • Warp Ends: 180
  • Ends Per Inch (EPI): 12 EPI
  • Picks Per Inch (PPI): 12 PPI
  • Width in Reed: 15 inches (38 cm)


This scarf is approximately 15 inches wide and you could definitely warp your loom using a warping peg. If you modify the scarf to be significantly wider, I would suggest that you use the directions here which describe the Indirect Warping method (winding a warp using a warping board prior to dressing the loom).


Your choice of colours for the warp and the weft will make all the difference! For this scarf, I chose to use six different colours for the warp, but you could choose just two or three colours, or a gradient mini skein set, or holding a few different colours together to make fine stripes. It’s up to you!
