Five Reasons Why I Love “Almost Ikat”


I finally found the perfect name for creating ikat-like effects using commercial space-dyed yarn–ALMOST IKAT.

If you love ikat, but don’t like or don’t have the space to dye yarn, here is a good solution.


It is so much fun to weave because the design unfolds before your eyes.


There is minimal planning.


I can use Almost Ikat as a stand alone design (as simple or complex as I desire) or use it as an accent with other techniques


I am about to cut the scarf off the loom and toss it in my suitcase on the way to Columbus, Ohio. I will finish it off and launder it at the workshop.

Check out my little YouTube tutorial for instruction on how to create Almost Ikat.
