Note: When warping the loom, don’t over pull the warp! Keep consistent tension.
Your PPIs for this project should not be more than 7. Make sure you’re being consistent. This yarn did full slightly.
Weft Color Order
Amy carried her weft up the side in this project, so we have a quick video going over her process for this project.
Leave fringe (warp unwoven) at least 4-5 inches long, tie your overhand knot in groups of two warp ends, then trim to your liking.
Happy weaving! We can’t wait to see these Donegal scarves! Be sure to tag us on Facebook or Instagram for a project shout out!
