Huck Lace and Tencel Scarf Weaving Pattern Download
I chose to weave these scarves in Tencel partly because of Tencel’s eco-friendly naturebut also because fabrics woven in Tencel are easy to care for, and the yarn takes dye beautifully. Weaving an entire project in a single color can be monotonous, but the sheen and depth of color in Tencel makes this scarf a joy to weave.
