Picasso inspired scarves cont’d

black & white

scarf 1

The Black and White Inspired by Picasso scarves have been woven and finished. In a previous post, I shared a picture of the scarf 1 as it was being woven on the loom. The fun part of weaving deflected double weave is that on wet finishing of the piece the yarn will shift. Since one type of yarn is used there will be equal shrinkage thru out the piece. These scarves are woven of 8/2, 100% tencel yarn in 3 colors, black, white and gray.

After weaving the first scarf I decided to play with the weft treadling as well as color repeats. This second scarf was beat firmer, giving a thicker scarf. I’m having so much fun playing with the deflected double weave, that I’ve begun weaving another set of scarves using a different pattern. Click on the scarf photos to go to a higher magnification where the image is clearer.

  1. Beautiful! I love the black, white and gray. This is one off those great items that looks great from a distance and then gets even more interesting up close where you see the deflections.
