Lucy Neatby


468 Sea Lettuce Scarf

"A spiralling, frilly, short-row extravaganza in two widths with picots and a modified bind-off method," explains Neatby. It's notable that what sounds like hyperbole from others is just plain fact coming from her. In this painstaking and detailed pattern two widths are offered-- one for DK-and-heavier yarns, and another for Dk/sport/finer yarns-- and the preparation is such that the actual instructions begin on page 4 of 8. There are coloured diagrams and tips throughout, all leavened with Neatby's unique humour: she even explains how to manage to remember things "when knitting on auto-pilot". No particular yarn weight or needle size is specified, so please yourself. A treasure. Une version française est disponible içi.

Lucy's Fast and Loose Modified Bind-Off Method (MP4 VIDEO DOWNLOAD FOR iPHONE) is now available, and she highly recommends it for this scarf.

Lucy's Sea Lettuce Scarf Tutorial is packed with techniques that you'll use for this scarf and many other projects.

I have 6 inches done of this scarf and it is so awesome. I am a newer knitter but really enjoyed learning new things with this scarf. The instructions were great and the you-tube video provided additional details. Lucy's dvds are on my wishlist for sure!

Received the following from Lucy herself:

I'm guessing a bit, but I'd say 2-3 balls. Weigh the scarf after 6". Multiply the scarf length (in units of 6") you want, by the weight of yarn used for 6".

Happy stitches, Lucy

Has anyone made this (Scarf One) in chunky mohair --specifically Plymouth yarn "Drifting Gardens" whose recommended gauge is 3 stitches to an inch on size 10 and 1/2 needles. This yarn has 82 yards per skein -- any advice on how many skeins needed and if it would work well?
Thank you.
