Leno Weave Scarf… FO & Turned-Weft Ikat Weaving Tutorial

I have been down for the count for a couple of days with some kind of allergy/cold… my poor nose is grateful for aloe tissues!  Anyway, I finally finished the leno weave scarf. 

This is done with size 10 crochet thread and is done in a loose weave… no beating.. and I have to wonder if it will be soft enough for fine finished furniture.  I did the loose weave and tried the leno work in an effort to soften this up, but I have this sneaking feeling that if something heavy is put on it and then scooted around on the furniture it will eventually scratch the finish.  Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but I think perhaps this will have to have a lining of some kind.  But the leno work came out ok.. not great for a first try, but ok.

Edit:  When I clicked on the pic to see if the link worked, I noticed that the free end of the scarf that is easiest to see is the one that is not done correctly.  I found that the instructions are entirely correct when they tell you how to know where to place your heddle for the leno…lol  On the left end, the heddle was in the incorrect position.  If you click on the pic and scroll to the right…that end is correct and had the heddle in the correct position when I did the leno…

I am such a newbie at most of the things I try… but this lady is amazing.  Here is a tutorial on Turned-Weft Ikat Weaving  by Bonny Tarses in the spring issue of Weavezine.  What beautiful work she does!

Have a look…
