We asked our weaving designer, Robin Lynde from Meridian Jacobs to design us a soft and luscious chenille scarf kit that would really say red, the color associated with warmth, power and passion. Here are her notes on how she designed this scarf.
I love having a good supply of reds on hand. Scarlatto, Show Off Red, Scarlet all have subtle color differences. Although I used only Scarlatto in this chenille scarf I also sometimes like to blend them all in one warp. Gypsy Chenille Mini Cones are a great way to get small amounts of a variety of colors.
Whether I’m winding a mult-colored or mulit-shaded warp I use an easy method that keeps everything in order. Click Here for my easy warping method.
Click Here for all our TIPS on Weaving with Chenille. Once the Gypsy Chenille scarf is on the loom, it’s easy sailing to weave it off. I warped and wove this Stitch Red Scarf Kit in less than a day! And this kit is designed to weave either one thick & snuggly scarf or two narrower scarves, so you can weave one for yourself and give the other as a way of promoting women’s heart health to someone you love!
The best way to finish and full this scarf is to put it in the washer on gentle with a very mild laundry liquid. Throw it in the dryer and remove just before completely dry. Complete warping, weaving and finishing instructions included with your Stitch Red Chenille Scarf kit!

RED is truly the color of love, passion and a way of reminding us to STOP, smell the roses, take care of ourselves and do what we love for ourselves and all we love!
