Knitting fake fur!

Loving all the big faux fur shag vests and jackets out there.... thought I would try my hand at knitting a shaggy scarf for starters. Used an old faux fur technique from an old 70's knitting book. A bit time consuming with all those loops but I love the effect and result.

Now that I am brave and confident with the technique I have started a shaggy black coat!! To wear with a lace mini skirt and ankle boots...
