Scarves for Christmas giving #2

Diana wove this big, warm scarf using the yarns that Marcy brought to the brown bag exchange. The warp is an 8/2 or maybe 10/2 cotton in navy and was sett at 12 epi. Diana added some red cotton stripes to the warp and then used a 1/3 twill draft. The weft is a loopy acrylic blend in navy.
The scarf is fairly wide -- maybe about 12", so it lends itself well to being worn as a shawl.

Diana added extra red threads to the fringe to give the dark navy fabric a bit of spark.

Here is another dramatic way to wear this very versatile winter scarf.
