Weaving a Clasped Weft Scarf

The other week I decided I wanted to learn clasped weft weaving. With 3 colours in hand I decided to warp the dark purple and use the 2 lighter colours on the weft. One is hand painted Colour way of light purple, blue and hint of mauve pink and the other a tonal hand painted merino wool in the mauve pink colour. I love using merino wool it is so soft and lovely to wear.

The great part about clasped weft weaving is your free to decide on each row how far to move each colour. You can do so many things with this pattern. Check out the various YouTube videos online for great demonstrations on how to do this weaving technique.

Clasped weft weaving is something I want to explore further in the future. Maybe some mug rugs will be next.

Weaving a spaced warp scarf with stripes

Weaving a space warped scarf this time with stripes of gray. I enjoyed weaving my first space warped scarf I chatted about in previous blog and wanted to try another only a bit longer and with a darker warp and lighter weft.

For this scarf I used sock weight yarn in a beautiful natural colour on the weft and a medium gray on the warp. On a whim I decided to add some stripes. At the bottom. I did the stripes double stranded and left the ends to weave in later at the back to avoid overlap of gray.

The spaced warp style of weaving gives a beautiful soft texture to the design and I love how the gray shows under the lighter natural colour. I am planning on making a table runner with this pattern soon. Try it yourself. It is truly enjoyable to weave.
