Mission accomplished.

This is the huckaback scarf after it has been fulled (washed, so that the warp and weft threads meld together a bit). It is supposed to be a lacy weave but I was a bit disappointed with the scarf as the difference between the mercerised cotton weft stripes and the acrylic double knitting weft stripes caused a crinkly edge. Still, I have learnt from that.

I think the mercerised cotton makes a good warp but I'm not keen on it forming both the warp and the weft. It's a bit too like a dishcloth.
