    Valley Yarns #65 Four-Shaft Advancing Twill Scarf in 2/10 Merino Tencel PDF

    Add some zing to a basic 4-shaft twill by advancing it. The pattern looks way more interesting than your basic straight draw threading and treadling. It definitely requires more attention both to threading and treadling, but the appearance makes it worth the extra effort.

    Available as a downloadable PDF only.

    Equipment: 4-shaft loom with 9-dent or 12-dent reed, minimum weaving width of 12”; 1 shuttle & bobbin; fringe twister (optional)

    Finished Size: 6 1/8” x 64”, or length to weaver’s preference

    Yarn: Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino/Tencel, 1400 yards/1/2 lb. cone
    WARP: Navy, 432 yards for a 3-yard warp
    WEFT: Navajo Red, approx. 288 yards for a 68” scarf before washing

    Width in Reed: 8” 
    Sett: 18 epi in a 9-dent reed (2/dent), or a 12-dent reed (1-2-1-2, etc.).
    Total Warp Ends: 146, including floating selvages.
    Warp Length: 3 yards allows for 72” woven length with fringe length coming from tie-on and thrums. Because the beat is fairly light, there will be a significant amount of take-up and shrinkage.

      Comments about Valley Yarns #65 Four-Shaft Advancing Twill Scarf in 2/10 Merino Tencel PDF:

      The pattern makes a very nice looking scarf which can be casual or dressy. However, the designer chose a warp which breaks very easily. A small tug breaks it and it cannot withstand the abrasion of the reed. Substitute a sturdy warp, use the recommended weft and i think you will have a fine finished product without the frustration of frequently repairing your warp.
