It isn’t easy to make circles in any type of weaving but I’ve managed it here by using a technique called deflected double weave and differential shrinkage.
The dark blue wool in the warp and weft shrinks when the scarf is washed which pulls the turquoise cotton into the dots.
This is a lovely long, thick winter scarf made from Shetland wool and cotton. It didn’t shrink anywhere near as much as I was expecting it to so if you like a long scarf this one is definitely for you. The reverse has a simple grid pattern and it’s been finished with decorative fringes.

I recommend a gentle hand wash in warm water and dry outside
