Colors That Pop

 

Chennille scarf

This painted skein of yarn intrigued me when shopping at HGA Convergence vendor hall in 2014. There was only one skein with this color scheme, yet it would be enough for warp for one scarf with some to spare.

Once  I got the painted warp on the loom and tried to cross it in the weft with different colors, green, bright blue, gold, each color just seemed to create mud. Then I remembered the cone of black chenille in my stash from years ago. A perfect solution. The warp colors now popped. The chenille gave a softness to the scarf that would be warmer in the cool months than if Tencel was used in the weft.

Weft color choices will enhance the warp 🙂 or leave you wondering what was I thinking 😦

    • D’Anne,this pattern is called Trellis by Bertha Gray Hayes and is in her book Weaving Designs by Bertha Gray Hayes Miniature Overshot Patterns. It’s only 4 harness. It’s a pattern I really like and easy to weave.
