Woven with an uneven beat on the rigid heddle loom, the thick and thin weft creates a textured, wavy infinity cowl. Depending on the texture and the angle of the beat, each cowl will be completely unique!

Both Sides Now Silk & Bamboo Bloom Cowl

Wear long and loose to show it off all day, or scrunch it up for extra warmth and a pop of color under winter coats. This luxurious cowl is as soft and cheerful as a cloud of cotton candy! The Both Sides Now cowl features a cool back and forth rocking motion as you beat – making it as fun to weave as it is to wear. No time or budget for a handspun art yarn? The thick and thin of the Bamboo Bloom provides even more texture and tips are given to emphasize the lofty roving-style tufts of color. The Soft Twist Silk gives extra shine and an elegant texture in your warp, as well as the warmth and softness of 100% silk. Plus, the fun fringe really sparkles!

Equipment: Requires a rigid heddle loom with a weaving width of at least 10 inches and a 10 dent reed (width in reed is 10 inches). Shuttle, threading hook, warping peg or boards, tapestry needle, and (optional) fringe twister.

NOTE: The Both Sides Now Cowl was specifically designed to take advantage of the free movement of your heddle to create the angled beat. To weave this project on a standard floor loom you’ll need to use a separate beater, such as a pick up stick. Please also adjust your yardage to accommodate additional loom waste.
