Weaving a Scarf on a Cardboard Loom

I want to make a scarf on a cardboard weaving loom using #4 yarn; that is how thick the yarn is. Can anyone show me how to make it?

Without knowing what the loom is like, this is difficult to answer! But the general idea of weaving is to start with a number of threads strung lengthways and fixed at both ends. The length should be the length you want your scarf.

In proper weaving there are 2 sets of lengthways thread with a switch that changes which set is uppermost. The cross thread usually wound onto a stick or bobbin is passed between the long threads. Then the switch sends one set down and the other set up. This traps the crossing thread between the long ones. So you repass the cross thread, and use the switch again, and so it goes on.

I've never heard of a cardboard loom but it guess it might be a bit simpler, perhaps just one lengthways set of threads and a little bobbin to weave in and out of them to create the fabric.
