        Hello,

        I am a new weaver trying to weave a bamboo scarf. I’m having difficulty with my right hand selvedge. It is dipping down creating a space between picks at that edge. What might I be doing wrong? Can I fix it? I’ve read Jane’s article on In Praise of Selvedges and think I’m following but I must be missing something.

        Thanks!

        Zoe

          What size weight is your bamboo and what do you have it sett at, Zoe?  Also, have you tried giving the shuttle a little tug after you have beat it in place and before throwing your next pick?  It’s strange but weavers usually have better selvedges on one side of their cloth – it’s normal – hopefully we can figure it out.
