Turned twill is one of my favourite weave structures.  The profile draft for this scarf and “Josie’s Scarf” comes from my “Units, Blocks and Profiles” workshop 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.

Shopping List for 2 scarves:   Zephyr Wool/Silk: 100g cones  each of Marine Blue, Royal Blue and Iris.
