photo (above) "Two Sides of the Moon, designed and woven by Robin Wilton, using Alirio-Thinner (silk noil), colors #4 Rendezvous Blue and #57 Raven Black
Robin Wilton knocked one out of the park when she created this 4-shaft silk scarves design. You can weave it with either
Alirio-Thinner (20/2 noil) a very affordable silk (see photo above) or
Kiku (20/2 silk), our most popular silk (see photos below).
By alternating two colors in the warp (colors #4 Rendezvous Blue and #57 Raven Black), then weaving the first scarf with #4 Rendezvous Blue, and the second scarf with #57 Raven Black, you get two different looks from the same warp.
This is an easy threading and only needs 199 ends. It weaves up quickly, using a single shuttle. You can weave a special gift for someone (including yourself!) in no time at all.
The draft shows even-width point twill stripes, but you can make them random widths, as Robin has woven hers, for a bit more fun.
Using either similar-value colors in the warp or high-contrast colors in the warp work equally well with this versatile design.
The accent stripes are a great opportunity to go “shopping” in your stash. The stripes can be any color, fiber (cotton or silk).
If you choose a thicker grist yarn, you just need 35 yards.
If you choose a thinner grist yarn, then double it and treat as one end when threading your loom. You'll need 70 yards
