One fun thing about a single-ply yarn like Lanaloft is that it has a tendency to track (the yarn fulls when washed giving a patterned look, even to plain weave like this). This comfy and warm large shawl can be worn inside and outdoors--a great item to snuggle up in. Using five colors, it is a true plaid with the same color sequence in the weft as in the warp. It is woven using Lanaloft Sport, a 100% wool yarn sett at 10 epi. This is a winner of a project--very soft, very warm, very handy! Finished stole is 23” x 67” plus twisted fringe. This shawl can be hand washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- 26” weaving width
- 2 harnesses
- 10-dent reed
- large boat shuttle and 5 bobbins
- optional--fringe twister for finishing fringe
