I started simply, just going back and forth. It took a while to get my edges clean; they were very loose. After I wove for a while, Natalie showed me this:
It's a Leno (lee-no) lace weave. It involves a bit of hand weaving to twist the warp. It required a lot of focus to find all the strands of the warp, but it makes a really cool design. I started twisting four strands. later I tried twisting twelve. While bolder, the twelve strands seemed a little harder to control in the weaving.
After four hours, I had my scarf. Here are some close ups of the different weaves.
