I wanted to try a shadow weave in chenille. I decided to do a sample to evaluate the colors I wanted to use, the structure (sett, ppi) and the effort required to produce one scarf since shadow weave requires two shuttles.
This is one time that the sample really paid off since the colors I chose do not provide enough contrast to really appreciate the effort. As you can see from the picture, the pattern -- diamonds --is barely visible. A little too subtle....for me.
I know someone will love it.
