Last weaving class project

As my last project for the Beginning Weaving class, I decided that I wanted to try overshot. Another student showed an overshot sample she was working on, and I decided it was time to try it while I would still be able to bring it in for the teacher's critique and help if needed.

The scarf pattern is the His and Hers Scarf, and I thought I'd use green and berry colors, especially the lime green, so worked up my sample.

At first, I didn't like the color stripes, so went back to the shop and purchased additional colors to stay in a blue-violet to hot pink range, and made it up.

Here's the scarf, showing front and some of the wrong side. (Sorry about my toes, not enough time for Photoshop editing right now.)

Now that the scarf is off the loom, and I'm looking at my colorful sample and the scarf side-by-side, I'm thinking I should go ahead and work it up in the bright colors too (when I have the time).

I like the finished scarf but it looks very nice in the many colors, too.


I like them both, you did a great job!
