Subtle – Striped Lace Scarf Pattern
This lace scarf is lightweight and great for cool weather! It features subtle vertical stripes due to the use of simple alternate threading and an uncomplicated hand-manipulated lace towards each end of the scarf. Woven as plain weave, this scarf shines through the small details, but weaves up fast!
This pattern is designed for a 4 harness floor loom, but can also be woven on 2 harnesses with no issues!
Pattern includes recommended materials with total amounts needed, weaving draft, step-by-step instructions to create the lace, and aftercare information.
Striped Houndstooth Scarf
This scarf has a fun stripe of hounds tooth on the side and features a slubby cotton yarn for subtle texture.
This pattern is designed for a rigid heddle loom but can also be woven on a floor loom!
Pattern includes recommended materials with total amounts needed, step-by-step instructions on how to interlock your discontinuous weft, and aftercare information.

Weaving Organization Spreadsheet
When it comes to organization it also pays to take a little bit of time to compile a list of all of your weavings and their info in one place. I created a spreadsheet that I keep in my Google Drive so that I can access it anytime, even on my phone!
This may not seem like a big deal, but if you’re ever talking to anyone about your work and you’re away from a computer – all you have to do is look at your phone to see how much you priced your weaving at!
When I first started my studio practice I didn’t have this and I would constantly be re-measuring artwork and trying to remember how many hours I spent on each piece…. etc. The spreadsheet has helped immensely whenever I apply for a show. I NEVER remember prices or sizes. Sometimes I don’t even remember the year it was finished….
I want you to be organized too, so I’ve made the same spreadsheet I use available to you!
