shag, in blue max

Here is my attempt at the Shag scarf, done in a chunky Lang M.A.X. (50% wool, 50% acrylic) I had lying around in the stash.
I went up to a 6.5mm needle in order to have a less-stiff fabric.
It took me a few squares to understand the concept, but then it went quite quickly after that.

If I had more of the yarn, then I would have kept knitting for a longer scarf.
I think I likely flipped a square the wrong way a few times, but I am happy with the final result.
It's very warm on one's neck!

Yes, I am likely to try this again in other yarns in future.

Your scarf, knit in a chunky weight, looks like a great cold weather scarf.

Flipping triangles from one side to the other is great variation. Ina Braun, designer of the Tante Sophie patterns, knit Shag that way too. You can see a picture of her scarf modeled by her dog Gumby at purlbee.

Hmm, I think the Portuguese post above might be spam. It's advertising a blog about poems and quotations, as far as I can tell...

Thanks for that, Wendy. It hadn't occurred to me to check it. Since it's just an individual mentioning her blog, it's not advertising for a business or anything, I've just left it. We may have some knitting poets amongst our readership. But please feel free to let me know if you spot anything else .
