A game to test your knowledge.

I've posted an addition to the weaves section but left all the information blank for now. I'm curious to see who can identify this weave, it won't be easy but there are a few very subtle clues. Or perhaps someone else has stumbled across this before.

I'll give another hint in a week or so if no one gets it. Good luck.

Technical nomenclature says:

Core-Kinged, Staggered, Shaggy Loops?

And these, on a chain in a row? Razz

And technically it should've been posted under Hybrid, as it contains Jap elements Wink

I probably way off but looks a little like an back to front Coyote. But I would say that it's more like a Jap 2in2 with extras (like Shaggy Loops extras).

EDIT no not Jap hummmmm

Are you sure? I think you've just missed the first very subtle clue, now not so subtle.

I think you're giving us an odd angle of an inverted... something.

I agree with Euar, it looks like you could make an oddly shaped Jap 8-2 cube with what you've got. But if it's supposed to be a completed weave, then I have no idea.

Well, I'm thinking it's a shaggified Japanese 8in2 webbing.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but to me it just looks like shaggy 4-2 chains that are connected horizontally every seven rings making a very strange sheet.

I'm kinna wondering if that's not the point here. But either way, I've got these green, double-knit polyester golf pants and this weave swatch is just screaming, "Matching Vest!" Laughing Now if I could only remember how my grandma made those crocheted beer can hats....

alright , I think it is simple... it is a design made up of the two elements that are what supposedly distinguish, the latest two addition to the weave
its 2-2 (but only in certain places , making it ..different Razz Surprised Laughing )and it is an existing weave pattern, with shaggy loops added( Embaressed Embaressed Embaressed )

OK, I guess I was being a bit vague. This is the entire weave, it is a sheet weave not a bit of a 3d weave, it would have been a larger piece but I ran out of the junk rings I was using up.

The angle was chosen as the clearest way to show the weave construction, however the point of this excercise is not to simply describe the construction of this weave.

There are no tricks. This is a known weave, it has a common name, two of them actually. I know that some members of this board have knowledge of this weave, the rest should. The challenge is, what is the name of this weave?

Shaggy Loops has rings that hang front/back then side/side. The shags on this weave only hang front/back.
