Notes: 

I sleyed the 8-dent heddle in my Glimakra Emilia rigid heddle loom by doubling up a pair of yarns in neighboring slot/hole pairs every inch, to add some texture to the warp. I also doubled rows across every so often, about every six inches or so, along the scarf. Subtle, but it did give it a bit more interest than solid red plain weave.

The only thing keeping this from "full happiness" was that it was in acrylic, at the request of the requestor; I'd do it again with a nice wool yarn, the texture is subtle but present, adding a nice depth to an otherwise plain scarf.
