Long scarf in Moiselle

Not from the book.but I made a hat in Moiselle[Wendy} and my 23 year old daughter appropriated it.
She then wanted a matching scarf, just plain garter stitch...that touched the floor when finished.
I know not from Lynne's book...but the book spurred my daughter to request the extra long scarf

Turning Scarf Ideas Into Bracelets

I’ve been making bracelets, some of which use techniques included in Knitting New Scarves. Here’s Looped, a free bracelet pattern which uses the interlocking technique used in the Carumboa scarf.

The Shag scarf also works up great as a little bracelet. I used fewer stitches and much smaller needles than for the scarf, but the structure is the same as the pattern in the book.

The bracelet (shown below) looks similar to the Flapper scarf, but is worked with one continuous yarn rather than in joined pieces. It was fun to figure out how to eliminate multiple cast-ons and extra-ends that need to be woven in.

A very long scarf

I gave all the other scarves away, then Samantha was looking for them, so I made her one.It's "shag" from Lynne Barr's Knitting New Scarves. However I couldn't get the triangles all on the same side of the scarf, don't know why.
This one is around 6ft long, at least as Samantha said she wanted a long scarf.
The photo is a little blurry. The yarn is Brushstrokes by Stylecraft, the colourway is Storm Cloud.
