This lightweight, breezy scarf was made on my return trip from vacationing in beautiful Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia. While I was there, I visited the LYS in town and immediately fell in love with this beautiful yarn, which was custom dyed exclusively for that shop by a dyer who lives not that far from me in Ontario.

Between the absolutely stunning colours and the really cool Nova Scotia-Ontario connection, I thought this yarn was the perfect souvenir of our trip, and I immediately set about making myself an accessory that would capture the essence of the relaxed seaside living we enjoyed on our vacation. I am in love with the changing tides, and the variation in textures is meant to represent the ocean’s many different moods, from smooth seas to choppy waves.

While this was designed specifically for this yarn and colourway, it looks great in any sock weight yarn (looks great in L&T Woollike), or can be made into a large, plush winter scarf by using a thicker yarn and larger hook.

This is a quick and fun scarf pattern, a great way to learn a couple of new stitches if you are a beginner, and the perfect accessory for any occasion!
