Oh and I will tell ya i was a success at something i wanted.
Went to the fabric store and picked up 2 different fabrics that i liked and thought would look really cute together.
And so The BASKET WEAVE SCARF came alive.
CUT 4 80×4 strips of 1 color fabric.
CUT 6 80×4 strips of the pattern fabric. Set 2 strips aside.
(I recommend anything soft. The pink i used was knit and the floral was a chiffon type of fabric)
Lay the 4 solid color strips that you cut on the floor, straighten them out and put them close together.
THE BASKET WEAVE:
You will start off by going OVER one strip and UNDER the next, OVER and UNDER.
(leave about 5 inches of the solid strips un weaven and leave about 5 inches of the pattern strip that you are using to weave un weaven on the end as we will use this to knot at the end.)
You are going to repeat same steps just starting opposite:
UNDER, OVER, UNDER and over.
Repeat until the end and make sure you leave about 5 inches at the end.
after you knotted both ends you will use the 2 stripes you set aside and measure exactly how long your plain fabric is left over in the ends. Mine was 5 inches so now for the pattern fabric i will double that length. My double length is 10 inches. CUT.
Yay! Now you have a Basket Weave SCARF!
