This two day class is designed to be flexible enough for a beginner with no weaving experience or an advanced beginner to intermediate rigid heddle weaver who feels like they still need a little help or who wants to expand skills learned in Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving. In this class, the students will learn the techniques required to direct warp a rigid heddle loom with two colors for a houndstooth check scarf. You will take the loom home overnight to finish weaving the scarf on your own and return the next day with the weaving finished. You will then learn how to cut off the scarf and learn to twist fringe. If you are a slightly more experienced beginner, you can learn to hemstitch in class, both at the beginning and the end of the scarf.

Supplies provided by student:

200 grams (400 yards) of worsted weight yarn in two different and contrasting solid colors, one light and one dark. You will need about 100 grams (200 yards) of each color. Suggested yarns are Berroco Vintage, Cascade 220 or Cascade 220 Superwash, Lion Brand Wool Ease, or Patons Classic Wool. You will need 100 grams (minimum 200 yards) of the dark color and 100 grams (minimum 200 yards) of the light color.

Additional supplies provided by the teacher:
Materials fee is $3.00 for the handout payable in cash to the teacher in class.

If you need to rent a loom, the rental fee is an additional $10 payable in cash to the teacher in class for the night you will have the loom at home.

The Cricket loom kit rental includes all supplies needed other than your yarn. If you have your own loom, it must be in working condition, have all necessary pegs and clamps, sley hook, warp separating paper, and appropriate heddle(s) for the yarn you are using. The $3 handout fee will still apply.
