Turned twill is one of my favourite weave structures. The profile draft for this scarf comes from my “Units, Blocks and Profiles” season and can be adapted to any yarn. The thing I like about turned twill is that you can put your colours in the warp and weave with just one colour in the weft, yet you achieve multi-coloured blocks. You can weave your profile square or change the height of your blocks by changing the number of times you treadle them. This system allows for many different graphic possibilities on one warp.
Each kit makes two scarves.
