Sea Lettuce Scarf designed by Lucy Neatby
Things you'll love about the Sea Lettuce scarf pattern: no charts, no schematics, no sewing! This is a fun, no think knitting pattern you'll want to make again and again. Here's what Lucy Neatby has to say about her pattern, "A spiraling, frilly, short-row extravaganza in two widths with picots and a modified bind-off method." Sea Lettuce Scarf is a great way to showcase a special yarn. We chose South West Trading Company's Yang yarn with beautiful sequins, but you could also use your favorite hand dyed or self striping fingering weight yarn.
This scarf may be knit in 2 widths, 20 stitches wide or 32 stitches wide.
You will need:
SWTC Yang Yarn (shown below) provides the glitz for this unique scarf. Available in 8 gorgeous shadees, just 2 balls are all you need!

It is five months later now, and I am still knitting these scarves. I can't stop! I have other things to move on to, but I'm having so much fun with thins one, and they turn out so beautiful, I can't help myself but do another, and another. I made one for my wool-sensitive daughter in law in Plymouth Kudo Self-Striping Cotton Silk Yarn (color #41) http://www.nobleknits.com/plymouth-kudo-self-striping-cotton-silk-yarn/. It turned out understated and elegant. I have two on the needles now. one in a hand dyed rainbow colored sock yarn from a home dyer, and another in Fibra Natura Oak DK Yarn in Earth. http://www.nobleknits.com/fibranatura-oak-dk-yarn/ Both are looking wonderful and the latter is really soft and nice. I have already purchased yarn for one more, a lovely peachy color with sequins. I think it's safe to say that I'll never really get tired of this pattern or the scarves it makes. Both are top notch and timeless. Unlike some other scarves, I don't think these will ever be a dated (and outdated) style.

This pattern was worth every penny. I'm a self-taught knitter, and I learned at least three new techniques, as well as reviewing some others I had not used recently. I did my first scarf in a knitting worsted so I could concentrate on learning and understanding the pattern. It turned out great. The instructions were clear and complete enough that I had no trouble understanding what to do and mastering the new skills. That alone was a thrill for me, and a confidence booster. Now I'm doing the wider version in a sock yarn I had stashed. It's turning out beautiful, too. It hasn't taken me long to understand how the pattern goes together so that I can knit without constantly looking to see what to do next. That's when it gets fun for me. This is a pattern I will be using again and again for years. It was worth the price to me just for my improved skills and confidence. It would have been worth it if only for the graceful and feminine product it produces. You don't need expensive yarn to get a great look, folks! Pull something from your stash and try it. I may splurge later on the recommended yarn, but I am in no hurry, as it looks so good with what I've got. I'm so impressed with Lucy Neatby's instructions, I will definitely consider purchasing more of her patterns.

I like working this scarf pattern. At first I didn't understand the written directions for the provisional stitches but then I went to the website and watched the video and it all made sense then. I enjoyed learning this new technique. I'm not finished with the scarf yet but it is coming along nicely. I can envision it in other colorful yarns.

Difficult to review without having knitted the pattern. What I can say at this point is that the instructions appear to be quite clear. There are video links given when useful and diagrams are provided.

Would you consider offering the pattern free with purchase of the yarn required? Would certainly consider a 'package' deal. Live in Halifax and can drop into shop.

This is an 8 page knitting pattern with instructions for both fine and heavier weight yarns in 2 widths and stitch counts. Therefore it is very adaptable. I have made 4 so far in sequinned yarn and rayon boucle' types. It is fabulous worked in long color sequenced yarns, which show off the short-row structure. My next version will be worked in fine silk with beads on each picot, which technique Lucy also explains. Since her workshops cost $75 to $100, this is a much less expensive way to learn her techniques. Instructions are clear and you will definitely learn something new. As to how long it takes to knit one of these scarves, how fast do you knit? It takes me 2 - 3 hours to knit 100 yards of worsted weight yarn on size 7 needles, so the scarves take me 9 hours at that rate. An advanced beginner who is adventurous could do this easily without the picots.
