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 an advanced beginner who has not done short rows before.
The green seaweed version is done in a worsted weight cotton blend yarn, but it works up great in multi-colored sock weight yarns too. The scarf is finished when you run out of yarn. The tan scarf is made from lace weight 100% cashmere. You can do whatever you want!
Included in the pattern are photos, a complete list of abbreviations, and a stitch glossary.
Directions on making a mini version are also included.
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.

My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
