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!
