Seafoam Scarf

For the next scarf I wanted to use some of the thinner and more uneven handspun I got in a market square in Budapest. It tends to twist into little curlicues, so I made the scarf in this open, sea-foamy sort of pattern of three garter rows then one row of yarn-overs every other stitch, slipped on the next row so they drop down and make loops twice as long as the usual row. I let the scarf get really really long and tied each end in a knot, partly to stretch the scarf out because I thought it looked prettier that way. This scarf was for Kari, who models it in the picture.
