Winding River Rock Scarf

It finally snowed last night and it is still snowing!!!

It's the big, dry fluffy kind of snow that we have been waiting for.

Perfect time for a crocheted scarf for the NVO:
Ooooooo...what an ideal yarn name for a scarf for my geology man...I will pretend it's called
 "Winding River Rock".
These colors, will go with denim, his brown leather bomber jacket, black and gray.
It was so simple to make, one single crochet then one chain, then each single crochet is worked in the chain space from the previous row.

If you are new to crochet, detailed directions can be found in the

I love how this stich worked up with this yarn.
(9 stitches down, 357 to go...leap year this year.)
I hope you are having the type of weather that you had wished for, as well!!!


  1. Good thing you made me that scarf to keep that young spruce tree warm!!! =) NVO

  2. Great scarf! The stitch pattern gives it a nice tweedy look. I was coveting - I mean wondering about - that line of yarn the other day. Premier has some very nice stuff. I love their Serenity Garden.

    We're having an odd warm spell right now which seems all wrong for January. I'd really prefer the fluffy snow (I can't believe I just said that).

    P.S. You'll have to let us know if the "anti-pilling" factor really holds up.

  3. Super schick & tolle Farben!

  4. Tweedy is a good description. I must check out this "Serenity Garden" yarn, what a lovely name for a yarn.

    It's been so war here too. Back to sunny again today but at least the snow is hanging around - that blanket of white is gorgeous.

    Thank you Manja for your nice comments!
