I am so happy to have finished this.  It took about a week from start to finish and is my first finished project.  It does look just like the pattern was supposed to although I wasn't sure of anything....just jumped into it.  It did take me awhile to figure out what a draft was and then I had to add floating selvages to make the edges weave right.  I wove it on my four harness table loom.

Boy, nothing feels so good as finishing this and it actually looking right.  Hope y'all like it!

Thank you for your posts. 

It is made out of unmarked kinda thin yarn that I bought at a thrift shop.  I believe it is Red Heart Sport yarn which is 100% acrylic.  It definitely wasn't wool.  I wasn't sure what it would look like so I was glad to have something to test the waters with. 

The yarn was sticky when I changed harnesses but using the beater opened the shed right up as long as I kept an eye on it and moved the scarf forward every couple inches.

I zigzagged the edges as in the directions but didn't like how the edge looked so I ran a embroidery split stitch over the zigzag stitches with the same tan yarn and liked the look of it...it made it look finished.

That looks great. I love using floating selvages all the time. They are a wonderful invention. Congradulations of your first woven thing!!

That turned out wonderful!  I need to read more about trying to put some type of pattern into my weaving, because I really like the way your scarf looks like it has the diagonal white stripes in it.  Too cool!
