Waving of the Wheat pattern
Item Number: WP-YB-498-

Detailed Description

A ripe wheat field is an amazing thing to see, with the wind sending ripples through the rows and setting the wheat heads dancing. We've tried to capture that movement in our shadow weave scarf. It is woven in slinky 5/2 Rayon, for extra drape and swing. In shadow weave, two colors alternate in both the warp and weft, creating a complex design through color and weave effect. The warp is sett at 18 epi and includes solid stripes in addition to the shadow weave sections. The weft alternates the two warp colors throughout. The kit makes one scarf with finished dimensions of 5.75" x 70" plus fringe. It can be hand washed and air dried, with a quick tumble in the dryer to soften the fabric.

You will need:

  • 5/2 Rayon: 1 cone each of 2 colors
  • 7.25" weaving width
  • 4 harnesses
  • 12 dent reed
  • 128 heddles
  • 2 boat shuttles and bobbins

We used Rayon 5/2 in Nut Brown and Gold for our scarf.
