Do you love to weave? Here is a draft for an overshot scarf made from 10/2 Xie (rayon from bamboo) and long color-run sock yarn. You'll need a 4-harness loom, a 12-dent reed, 2 shuttles and the willingness to have a little fun!

American overshot drafts, like quilt names, are frequently inspired by the natural world, Bible stories and historical events. The Soldiers Return scarf is a miniature draft derived from a classic American draft of the same name. We don't know which war inspired the name and the draft, but I'd like to encourage everyone to support our returning soldiers.

Overshot is a classic weaving style brought to this country by the early European settlers. You'll find the classic blue and white overshot coverlets in museums, antique stores and old homes. Today, overshot is being re-imagined in all kinds of ways. It's still a beautiful, fun style to weave.
