This year I learned to design and weave Turned Taqueté.  I designed and wove this scarf on 12 shafts using 8/2 Tencel for the warp and a thin, 20/2 cotton yarn for the weft.  In this scarf the warp-emphasis weave works well with a sett of 40 ends per inch and about 30 picks per inch.  I will be sharing samples of this scarf with my Fine Threads Study Group at Complex Weavers as this year’s study.

The above is another Turned Taqueté scarf I designed and wove on 8 shafts using Tencel and rayon with the same sett as the other scarf of 40 epi and 30 ppi.  I wrote a full post with drafts and notes about this scarf at this link.
