Creating different textures & patterns in freeform overshot

head_braids

The Venus of Willendorf’s head. I’m still experimenting with how to recreate various textures and patterns in freeform overshot. This project is only my third scarf using the technique. In this case, I played around in my weaving software with different ways to represent her braided hair. The effect I have created will look different once I wet finish the scarf; the pattern weft will be more prominent. Most of her body is 4:1 sateen.
