    Wonderful challenge!  My first woven scarf.  Unfortunately my first thread in the reed broke more than once but managed to rescue it.

    Hi Ginette,

    Thank you for you suggestions.  I think I will try re-slaying and use a 1 inch grid per your suggestion.  Will post the outcome.

    Hi Carol,

    I would do a couple more samples.

    I think if you resley your reed in 1 inch grids (16 threads threaded 1,1,2 in your 12 dent reed) and maybe have 7 empty dents. Also, weave 16 threads per dented section to make one inch squares.

    If you wanted to keep your 1/2 inch grids, adding a few extra empty dents in each of those sections might help.  Also, when you wove your dented sections, did you keep them at 8 picks per dented areas? Counting your colour changes, I count 6 threads per dented section. If they are 6 weft shots per dented area, increase them to 8 for the 1/2 inch grid.

    Maureen, the Bamboo 7 gauge is closer to 8/2 cotton while the Bamboo 12 gauge is closer to  the 20/2 silk, if that helps you figure out which bamboo you have in your stash.

    I’ve done a small sample of Denting with 5/2 cotton, in a 12 dent reed set at 16 epi, with a 1/2 inch grid.  This put 8 ends per grid, dented at 1.1.2.  My project is 11.75 inches on the loom.  This is a 15” four harness Dorothy usining all four harnesses.  As you can see in the photo my warp just spread out in the wash.  I have re-read and re-watched everything.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I have some JST Bambu in “cloud” that I’m thinking of trying if it’s not too slippery. I’m not sure if it’s Bambu 7 or 12. I ordered the 12, but the label inside the cone says ”Bambu 7GG”.  Maybe alternate pics in cotton and Bambu would be more stable?

    I love your scarves, fudsy1.  They look so pretty on that coat.

    correction: I should have said outfit I think.

    At the end of my warp I had 2 samples to keep for future reference. Then I wove 3 scarves.  One with the cotton warp, another with the 30/2 silk (my favorite). the last scarf was made with leftover black 2/18 wool and a mystery fuchsia yarn I found in my stash.  Once wet finished spread out through the whole warp.  It’ very shear looking and I’m pleased with all three.   Now back to working on season 2 Plaid E35D4ADF-08A6-4F6E-B2E8-C0ED9B72EFB9CF7D029C-8ACD-4A7C-95F0-9635583E01B6174E2801-F43E-42A7-8B6F-4750DE5B07BA82BFB755-630E-41E9-8252-22892C4CBE525F0D9298-5D3A-479E-A03C-FE382641915F

    Thank you Ginette.  It has been so much fun and enlightening as to what you can do with a weave structure.  Ideas are circling!  Betty
