Huck Lace Scarf Pattern

huck lace scarf

The pattern is  featured in the Weaving Lace on Multi-Shaft Looms course with Laura Fry.

The combination of huck lace and colour makes an eye-catching ‘sample’ with a colour gamp woven in huck lace at one end of the scarf and the remainder woven in plain weave. This project is an opportunity to practice the different types of beat required between the lace and plain weave areas and work at beating consistently in both.
