Every pattern in our studio seems to have a story that always involves a series of weavers and events.
Many years ago I was teaching a workshop on Whidbey Island and afterwards the lovely Kate McKibben designed a beautiful silk scarf based on what she had learned. Linda Knowles then took that idea, changed it a tad and interpreted it in 2 different yarns in an 8 shaft pattern. I then decided to create a 4 shaft version. These scarves are woven with a bambu warp and Zephyr (merino/silk) yarn for weft.
