Blueberries and Cream Scarf
Scarves are portable, but that doesn't mean that they can't look edible. This Blueberries and Cream Scarf by Michael Sellick for The Crochet Crowd is a blue and white do-it-yourself masterpiece made using a loom. The decadent yarn on this handmade scarf will keep your neck and chest toasty warm and comfortable. It might even inspire you to bake a blueberry cobbler a la mode to fit the cream theme. Enjoy this cool craft to the fullest with plush yarn and wear it with pride.
- 10" or 15" Schacht Weaving Loom
Scrap Yarns Used in this order (Keep in mind that when the Heddle is set up, each slot will have two strings, one going through the middle of the heddle only and the other going through the entire up and down slot):
- Red Heart Shimmer Turquoise for 4 Slots (8 strings)
- Red Heart Super Saver White for 3 Slots (6 strings)
- Red Heart Super Saver Monet for 5 Slots (10 strings)
- Red Heart Shimmer Yarn for 5 Slots (10 strings)
- Red Heart Super Value White for 2 Slots (4 strings)
- 1 Ball of Red Heart Collage Blue Wave for the cross strings
- Feed Machine with the scrap yarn as indicated in the above materials list. There is the number of slots there for each colour. The warp length is 90" from the warping peg to the back beam.
- Using Red Heart Collage, weave back and forth for the entire length. You will use the entire skien
- Remove from loom and tie groups of vertical strings together in an overhand tie knot.
- To maintain transition effect of the yarn, you must take the yarn from the Red Heart Collage Ball, form a smaller ball that you believe will fit onto the stick shuttle. Once you think you have the right amount, wrap the smaller ball of yarn onto the stick shuttle. If you wrap transitional type of yarn directly onto the stick shuttle from the yarn ball, it will reverse your yarn transition to be backwards. It will cause your yarn transition to be out of order and your project will not have a soft flowing transition of colours.
