Here are three scarves woven exactly alike, embellished with three different ribbons:
The next three that I wove presented a different challenge. I had yarn I wanted to use for the scarves but only one ribbon with colors that worked well with it. In this case I needed to change the woven part of the scarf to make each one unique.
If you look closely in the photograph, you can see that one scarf was woven with green weft, and the other was woven with a rusty orange.
The effect is subtle, but definitely creates a difference since I'm using the same ribbon for embellishing.
The third scarf (unfinished), was woven with a greyed lavender which you can see here in the spaces left for attaching the ribbon:
I'll finish this one later today. Meanwhile, two shades of red are on the warping board and ready to go on my loom. Can't wait to see how they'll look with the ribbons I have!
