Lazy River Scarf

Hi everyone! I just finished the “Lazy River Scarf” by ShellyMN off of Ravelry. If you don’t know about Ravelry…well, let me just tell you…they have probably any pattern under the sun for anything you want to create. It’s a site for both knitting and crochet and they have both free and paid patterns. You can search by yarn type, project type, difficulty level, color, etc., etc., etc. to find what you are looking for. If you want to find the pattern to the scarf in this blog, just head over to Ravelry and type in “Lazy River Scarf” in the search bar and it’s the one by ShellyMN.

I used Manos Wool Clasica yarn in the color “Mulled Wine.” I bought the yarn at Weaving Alabama, which is in downtown Northport, AL. Be sure to check them out if you’re in the area!

Isn’t it such gorgeous yarn??? I actually had to admire it for a while before deciding on a project!


I decided to knitĀ a scarf based on the yardage and type of yarn I had. After some searching on Ravelry, I found the Lazy River Scarf and chose that as what the yarn would become. I love it!

The pattern was easy to knit and easy to remember. Here is me working on it on a train from Prague to Budapest (more about overseas adventures later):

Have a great day, everyone!

Here’s to the Weekend Scarf


I am SO EXCITED! I made up the pattern to this scarf and love it! It’s a quick, easy knit and is great for beginners and experienced knitters alike. It’s a casual, chunky scarf that will add a nice touch of sophistication to your casual outfits. You can make this as long or as short as you want. It looks really great with a pair of jeans and cream or other light colored shirt. It is GREAT to knit over a weekend!

Yarn: Lion Brand Hometown USA, Sioux City Tweed (Super bulky)

Needles: Size 15 (US)

I used a little over 1 1/2 skeins (each skein of this particular type is 64 yds).


Rows 1-6: Knit

Row 7: K1, *YO, SL1K (Slip stitch as if to knit), K1, PSSO (pass slipped stitch over), continue from * all the way across until last stitch, knit last stitch.

Rows 8-13: Knit

Row 14: Same as row 7.

Continue pattern until you finish row 202. Then bind off.

For design: Rows 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77, 84, 91, 98, 105, 112, 119, 126, 133, 140, 147, 154, 161, 168, 175, 182, 189, 196.

The pattern might intimidate some of the more beginning knitters, so I decided to make a video tutorial so that you can learn the techniques and realize how EASY it is to make this great fashion accessory that will keep you warm all winter long. So, I’ll shut up now and get to it! (I realized that in the video, I call the design part a “new technique” but I mean that it’s new for beginner knitters, not a new technique all together. Just want to clarify!).

And here are some more photos!

Still working on learning to knit. I have the knit stitch and purl stitch down, though I am very good at making mistakes. I’m working on a scarf now, but really need to find some time every day to work on it!

Don't laugh - I'm a beginner!
