Hints and tips:
- Make sure your foundation chain is quite loose so that it matches the width of the scarf and so that you can attach the tassels at the end.
- Weave in all the ends before starting on the woven chains.
- Take care when measuring and weaving the vertical chains not to stretch them and keep them at an even tension.
