Cool summer scarf from a 12" triangle pin loom

This is a Covid story. I took a picture of these lovely triangles the last time I met with weaving friends on February 15, 2020. Brenda was planning to make a scarf and promised that I could take pictures of it the next time we met. I never expected that it would be fifteen months before that happened!


Forward to May, 2021 when I finally got to see, and take pictures, of the completed scarf-- while standing in the Minneapolis IKEA parking lot. 

The triangles are woven in fingering weight hand dyed blue-green merino. The joins and edging are same weight turquoise merino yarn. 

The scarf is made using ten triangles. They were woven on a 12" Hazel Rose triangle loom. 

I know that the gorgeous pin loom effect when using variable yarn is old news to most weavers. I admit that I am always moved by the incredible way that the colors meld and compliment one another with this style of weaving. 

I also want to note the lovely crochet edging on the scarf ends. I did not have enough sense to ask Brenda about the exact pattern, but if anyone wants to know, I am sure that I can get her to share it with us. 

Brenda, thank you so much for being willing to share your beautiful scarf.
