Using your stash yarns, learn how to weave a triangle scarf using one yarn strand at a time Using the basket weave. Unlike continuous strand weaving where you weave one continuous yarn having a pattern that is balanced on each side, Cut Strand weaving is different. The technique of weaving over and under is the same, however you use on stand of year for each row. This is a great way to use up your leftover yarn. You can mix and match your yarns for a colorful, very unique triangle scarf. There still is no elaborate planning or warping yarns. You weave as you go. The process is simple to learn and is enjoyable for adults and children of any age. Basic continuous weaving experience is helpful, but not necessary.
