Notes

15-inch Cricket loom and a 10 dent reed

I combined to vintage sock yarns, one that dates back to the late 1990s, of which I had leftovers in my stash. I seriously overestimated the amount of yarn I had and made the warp too long (3 yds), but I did end up with having enough weft yarn to make a useable scarf even with the waste.

I warped 90 ends total, 5 “cork” alternately with 5 “blue green” and ending with 5 “cork.” I hemstitched the beginning and the end, and I wove 42 picks of “blue green,” 4 picks of “cork,” and repeated until I was almost out of yarn, finishing with 42 picks of “blue green.”

Off the loom, I averaged 12 ppi and 11 epi. The length not including fringe was 56.5 inches.
