In the November/December issue of Handwoven, you'll focus on overshot techniques, colorful weaves and reusable materials to create warm and bright accessories for the chilly days of winter. We've even included 3/2 perle cotton and variegated sock yarn to help get you started on the featured Mermaid Scarf.

Included in this kit:

Free-Form Overshot Mermaid Scarf
Pattern included in the Handwoven Nov/Dec Issue

Weave this water-themed scarf with large spirals using a rigid-heddle loom. Rather than weaving in twills, use overshot! Overshot cloth uses a thicker weft for pattern floats alternating with thinner tabby picks that stabilize the web. Finally, use a pick-up stick to finish the spiral designs.

Then, thread together summer and winter with Pattie Graver and get picky with your picks to successfully weave together the pattern.

Customer Reviews (1)
I was disappointed, as I am new at weaving and was expecting good instructions, including a set up graph and weaving graph.. The very small graph provided as part of a magazine was not satisfactory. I purchased at 4shaft loom and was hoping that there would be instructions on how to set this up. But I will have a go at weaving on scrap wool before using the beautiful wool that came in the kit.

**Customer Support**

This project is intended to be a free form project. The instructions given are basic and designed for you to use your creativity with your weaving.
