It’s here at last… the pattern for my ‘Canalside Scarf’! This design was inspired by a recent narrowboat holiday that I wrote a blog post about…
I’m offering this design as a free pattern and the link to the PDF is towards the end of this blog post.
I used a 100g skein of hand dyed yarn and a 20g skein in a contrasting colour from ‘Country Mouse Yarns‘ – I wrote a blog post about these gorgeous yarns here…
‘Country Mouse Yarns’ – monthly yarn box…
These colours are perfect for a canalside scarf… the colours of the water, skies, boats and endless countryside we enjoyed are all there… 🙂 The scarf is a long, skinny scarf… really inspired by those long and narrow boats!
I started it at the beginning of our canal holiday and the time on the narrowboat was perfect for making quick progress…
And then providing a good space to finish and block it on the go…
Just in time for me to photograph it and wear it in the surroundings that inspired it…
It’s a really comfortable light weight scarf and I love wearing it! 🙂
There were so many beautiful photo opportunities…
And here’s the pattern if you’re interested…
Enjoy it and Happy Crocheting… 🙂

Hi, I’m from Australia, my dear friend is on holiday in England on a canal boat with her cousin, a perfect project for me to do for her. Thankyou
That’s certainly perfect timing! We loved our time on the canal boat… I hope your friend is enjoying it too… 😊💙💚
Love it – Just need to find some wool in my old narrowboat colours x
Ooooh how wonderful!! I bet those colours are gorgeous… 😊❤️
Thanks for the pattern and your interesting post. I live very close to the North Norfolk coast and do a lot of narrowboating with Girlguiding. I also share a passion for all kinds of crafts so lovely to come across a person with like-minded interests and the wonderful inspiration and patterns on your blog x
Thank you so much Stephanie… I appreciate you taking the time to get in touch! The north Norfolk coast is beautiful… 😊💙
How do I make the tassels? Being a newbie I’ve never tried before.
Hi Jane… bunch a load of stands together… fold them all in half and then put the loop end through where you want the tassel to go and then pull the other ends through that… I hope that makes sense!! There must be lots of YouTube videos out there… good luck! 😁❤️
