The ancient art of Soumak is given a modern twist in this easy to weave, luscious scarf. Originating in Anatolia circa the 7th century BC, this technique is still used for both decorative effect and to add sturdiness and strength to functional pieces such as rugs and travel bags. You will breeze through the plain weave sections and use a tapestry needle to create the raised Soumak rows that float across the width of the scarf. This is a free pattern from Purl Soho.
