A Shawl

Aside from some practice pieces, this is my first official woven project. It's a 24" wide shawl in wool yarn. Its about 5 foot long. It should have been a little longer, the target length was 6 foot. I'm still working on getting the right length to things. But, it does go around the shoulders nicely.
The photo below shows the detail. It uses a pick up stick design of 2 up & 2 down. It was fairly simple to accomplish & took about 4-6 hours to weave.

More to come, Stay tuned . . .


  1. Nicely woven!

    You did a great job on the pickup pattern.

    Have a good day!

  2. Very nice!! What was your weft and warp? Where can I get that pattern?
