#32 Collapse Weave Scarf PDF
Collapse weave creates a fabric with nooks and crannies and provides endless room for experimentation. With the Collapse Weave Scarf, we show three different variations to inspire you and expect that you will find many more. The pleating forms due to the weave structure and the combination of a weft that is much thinner than the warp. You can make it subtle or bold, spice it up with some glitz or play with stripes. Have fun!
