These kits include the Both Sides Now Scarf pattern as a digital download, and 4 50-gram skeins of Redfish Dyeworks 20/2 Silk.
I love simple weaving structures that, when combined with color and graphics, make a statement. This scarf does just that by using four-shaft loom combos randomly throughout, including 1-3 and 3-1 twills, to create different blocks of color on each side. This can be woven in any number of fine, lace-weight yarns, but we are especially fond of silk.
