Hand-woven scarf from Sirdar Firefly #884 yarn

In response to a request from a friend I have hand-woven a scarf using Sirdar Firefly #884 yarn.  This is a 100% nylon yarn comprising two black threads with small coloured squares joining the two threads at regular intervals.  I have used this yarn as the warp and used a similar thickness black wool yarn as the weft.
The  result is an interesting open-weave, lightweight, black scarf with many colourful small squares.  The colours in yarn #884 are reds, pinks, orange and light brown.  The 1810mm x 230mm scarf only weighs 58g.  It wont keep you warm but will certainly add colour to your outfit.
