Smålandsväv – Scarf #1

A few months had passed since the design and set-up of the Smålandsväv Scarf. What a thrill it was to weave this beautiful pattern in May.  Getting back to the loom brought me great joy.  The overall pattern repeats with a slight variation to celebrate the center of the scarf.

 

My younger daughter requested the scarf while visiting me at Väv Immersion.  She spied Becky’s Smålandsväv samples and fell in love with one in particular.  A few weeks later, I wove a sample with the colors that had caught her eye.  This spring I finished the scarf just in time for her summer break.  In no time she wound the fringe and experimented with the various ways she could wear and enjoy her dream scarf.
