JoJoland Woven Scarf


I finally used the second ball of JoJoland I had on hand.  De-stashing continues, and now I have a really long scarf.  K said he might just take this one for himself.  Last summer I made this, and while I like the shawl very much, I was disapointed with the yarn because of a knot and an abrupt color change.  This project went much better, and I used an entire ball to weave this project. 


The warp is a cashmere boucle from Colourmart.  I just used a fraction of the cone.  I made a warp of almost 3 yards, and warped it through a 12 dent reed, 2 ends per dent.  Obviuosly that was still too wide as the twill is not balanced, but I'm happy with the width of the scarf, and the feel of the fabric is perfect.  This is the most complicated thing I've woven yet, and it took a couple of weeks.  I like how the tiny boucle loops peek out and frame the wool.



 
New favorite scarf.
