Woven scarf part II

Here are some pictures I’ve been sitting on for a couple of months. After finishing my first woven scarf, it wasn’t long until I got started on a second one. This scarf is very special to me since it was a birthday gift for one of my very close friends and it was made from the yarn spun by another very good friend.

After the very subtle Pashmina scarf, I wanted to try something different and dug out this beautiful handspun yarn in shades of brown that Ceylan had given me for my birthday a few years back. Sarah and I have very similar colour preferences, so it was natural to make the scarf her birthday gift. The warp is Malabrigo sock in Cordovan, left over from the epic crochet blanket.

I wasn’t sure how this scarf would turn out, but it works really well. I love how the colours change organically and how the plain chocolate warp pulls it all together. I also love how the colours work equally well on guys and girls, as shown by my lovely model, James. (Just pretend he’s wearing a proper wool coat, not just a t-shirt.)

I would share some technical details, but this scarf went to live with Sarah in June and I can’t really remember anything else. I just hope Sarah gets some use out of it come autumn in Seattle.

So glad to see this blogged! I looooove my scarf. I have already worn it a few times despite it not being fall yet (thank you, cool Seattle weather) and people have complimented me on it/haven’t been able to believe it’s handmade. It’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to wear it all fall long!!!! :)
