Walking along the sandy beach I was intrigued by lengths of seaweed left behind by the waves. That is the inspiration for this scarf.
Short rows make this garter stitch scarf curl around its axis. This pattern is easy enough for the advanced beginner even if you have not done short rows before.
Sizes: The length depends on the amount of yardage.
I used Plymouth Yarn Somerset for the green scarf, my original seaweed look. Two balls (115yds each, worsted weight)of the cotton and silk blend makes a 36” scarf.
The red yarn is Plymouth Happy Feet (192yds), a sock yarn of washable wool and nylon and a dream to work with.
The tan scarf is Plymouth Ecco Cashmere (354yds), a laceweight 100% cashmere yarn that is so soft you barely know it is there except for the warmth it gives. Two skeins of Happy Feet or one skein of Ecco Cashmere make a 60” scarf.
I used size 7 needles for the Somerset scarf and size 4 for the Happy Feet and Ecco Cashmere.
Gauge is not really important for this pattern. In fact, feel free to try different yarns of different thicknesses. I suggest using the needle size that is recommended on the yarn label or a little larger.
The pattern includes color photos of the finished project, easy to follow directions, a list of abbreviations and a stitch glossary explaining the techniques used in the project.
