Sunday, Nov. 19 — Spanish Eyelet Scarf

  • Class Level: Advanced Beginner
  • Description: This weave structure is a variation of an eyelet weave that is commonly known as Spanish medallions. Harriett Tidball was one of the publishers of the Shuttle-Craft Guild Bulletin for many years during the 1940s - 1960s. Her article from 1951 on Open Work Weaves describes these structures as “A weave in which the weaver distorts the position of warp or weft threads so that small holes or eyelets are formed in the fabric.”  The sport weight cashmere suggested for this project allows the pattern to show nicely yet is extremely soft and luxurious.
  • Homework: None
  • Supplies to bring: Measuring tape, rigid heddle loom with at least 10” weaving width, 10 dent reed, clamps, sley/threading hook, warping peg, scissors, shuttle, 440 yards sport weight yarn (solid color shows off pattern best).  We request that you purchase materials from Raging Wool Shop; looms are available for in-shop use and purchase.
  • Class Time: Class begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 at the Raging Wool Shop with Deborah instructing. After official class time is over, feel free to stay until shop-closing time to work on your project.
  • Price: $125
