This easy rigid heddle project takes advantage of the beauty of hand-dyed rayon bouclé yarn Zig Zag. We started with a variegated color and then picked two of the line's nearly solid colors to go with it. All three colors stripe the warp and one is used as the weft. With all that color going on, there was no need for a pattern so we wove it in plain weave. The minimal loom waste of a rigid heddle loom meant that we were able to get the maximum length from our warp. The finished shawl is 15" x 78" plus fringe.
You will need:
- 18" weaving width
- 12-dent rigid heddle (or 12.5-dent for a narrower shawl)
- 1 flat shuttle or a boat shuttle and bobbin
We used variegated Zig Zag Stained Glass with tonal colors Magenta and Sturgeon Bay. If you would like these colors, simply order the kit above.
