Tonight I was looking for a quick project to make and I came across this video on Youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPpYivXfZWA and decided I could make one of these!  But, I wanted a shorter and thinner scarf than the one she made.  I live in Northern California and it doesn't get very cold here, just chilly enough that I want a little extra around my neck above my collar, you know?  Anyway, here's the result of a scrap piece of wood, eight screws, and a lot of time spend ripping and weaving.  I pretty much love it!





I will probably add a button to one side so I can keep it closed around my neck but other than that I am done and in love, can't wait for the weather to get colder so I can wear it  Grin

Very cute! I love how easy it is to whip up a homemade loom and go to town. I forgot how much fun it was to weave in 5th grade when everyone had to do it in art class.

So what did you use there? Is it yarn or fabric? I have crappy vision so I'm not sure. It looks like fabric to me.

I love it! Sounds like it's perfect for what you need!

The warp is regular yarn that I pulled pretty tight to try to eliminate any later stretching.  The weft is torn strips of a plaid fabric that I've had laying around for about five years, lol...so this was a destashing project as well!
