Shepherd's check is a traditional pattern that works well for chenille since it is a balanced weave with a float length of one. It also seemed like an easy/quick break from brain storming an upcoming yardage project. I put on a warp of royal blue alternating with grassy green and gold.
started weaving the check, it seemed a little too traditional so I
decided to use the check (with a couple of variations) only at the ends
of the scarves. The center of each scarf was woven in plain weave which
produces a stripe. The interesting attribute of the stripe is that the
edge is wavy and it looks like a rib in the fabric.
scarves look more interesting when worn due to the look of texture in
the stripe. I may go back to this pattern and do some more scarves in
