Tablet Braid


Tablet Braid Scarf
This pattern is inspired by examples of Viking-Style tablet weaving fabrics. Vikings produced beautiful fabrics by this method which they used to decorate their clothes, used as belts and as headbands. This scarf is a stylized cable pattern similar to a common motif found in Viking tablet weaving.
