Schacht Spindle Company has crafted a beautiful "Four Hands Scarf" using a blend of Medina and Ultra Wool DK yarns. Its uniqueness stems from the warping process in weaving, giving each scarf a distinct appeal. After setting up the loom, which is the most time-intensive step, the creation of the scarf is swift. Several yarn combinations are suggested for inspiration, and the pattern is available for download for DIY enthusiasts.
