Ms & Os Sample
These samples were based on a draft for a turned Ms & Os scarf using 10/2 cotton and 8/2 Rayon. I used 11.8/2 nm wool and a plain weave sett of 14 epi. Next time;
- Tighter sett
- Wider plain weave panel adjacent to the selvedges and tension separately
- Carefull thought about the colours
- Long twisted fringes
- Photoshop how this structure would look as a shawl
