Linda Knowles from Vancouver took a pattern from a scarf woven by Kate McKibbon (that was on display in the studio). She changed the block pattern just a smidge and interpreted it with 2 different yarns. This scarf is woven with a 12 gauge Bambu warp and a Zephyr weft. So beautifully done! It has a lovely hand and drape.
When you have a beautiful block profile you can interpret it in many different yarns to achieve completely different fabrics. Linda then took this profile and wove it in 2/8 cotton and cotton boucle to create beautifully absorbent kitchen towels. Also check out Linda’s Tea Towel kit.
