A update to the mixed warp project...

This it what it looks like while on the loom.

Off of the loom - not wet finished
And once it was cut off - this is what it looks like. I still need to wet finish it.

EPI: 10 - used an 10 dent reed Total Warp ends: 100 (plus 2 floating selvages) Warp Length - 3 yards Width in reed: 10” Straight twill threading: 1,2,3,4 - repeat
Warp: mixed yarns - wool, rayon, mohairs Weft: Lambada from Stahl Wolle

Beginning: Weave 9 picks - beat firmly
Body of Scarf: Weave 9 picks (2 inches) Weave 5 picks - beat firmly Repeat
End: Weave 9 picks - beat firmly

I ended up working closely to a pattern that can be found in:
Handwoven’s E Book - 4-Shaft Scarves. Magical Accent Scarf.
The pattern can also be found in: Handwoven Nov/Dec 1996 pg. 40, 76-77
Finishing: When the scarf comes off of the loom it looks like netting. The finishing will bring out the texture. Knot the fringe in groups of 5. Soak the scarf in warm water for 20 minutes - squeeze out the water and tumble dry.
Final photo in a day or two.
