If you have that one skein of precious, beautiful worsted weight yarn, here is a project suggestion for you … You can use the bias fabric feature, as it is described in the article “Designing with Hexagons: Basic Concepts”, to stretch your one skein supply and make a cool scarf on your TexaTURTLE loom!
Here is how it goes: Weave up your skein into hexagons, then watch the following video that shows you how to connect hexagons on the bias for maximum stretch:
The Lozenges Scarf as shown is made of 14 TexaTURTLE hexagons and results in a scarf that is about 80″ long, unstretched. You can adjust the length by using more or fewer hexagons.
Wear your scarf wrapped twice or three times for volume, open as “duster” accessory, double for a warming and decorative effect.
You can use different TURTLE looms and yarns, too … the first Lozenges Scarf was actually featured by Cocoa Bear in the Little Looms Holiday 2020 magazine. That scarf was woven on the TinyTURTLE fine-sett loom, using sock yarn.
Struggling with joining hexagons? This project is great “first time” joining exercise that is as easy as it can get. Watch stitch-by-stitch instructions here:
Go ahead and give the Lozenges Scarf a try! Easy to make, lots to learn, fun to enjoy.
TURTLE customer Lynne B. made this TexaTURTLE scarf earlier this year (see her comments below). While the joining direction for her hexagons is random, the scarf turned out to be lovely! And … don’t miss those humongous pompoms! Brava, Lynne!

Great video on joining, I always felt like mine didn’t look quite right. I love the tip on skipping a stitch.
Hi Gabi, I very much enjoyed your two videos on the lozenge scarf. I learned a better way to join the hexagons. In early January 2021 I made a scarf with 12 texaturtle hexagons. Most of the joining seams were most likely on the bias, but not by intension, but I ended up with a wavy look to the edges. I added a large pompom at each end to give it some weight and also for something to hold a knot better when worn. I will try to send a photo. Sincerely, Lynne
Lynne, Thank you for your kind comment, and I saw your picture. I love your scarf and the pompoms at the ends … well done!
