FO Friday: Seafoam Scarf

Posted by Underground Crafter on July 12, 2013 | Short Link

Some of my regular readers know that I love to participate in swaps.  There’s something fun about meeting a new fiber friend and who doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail?

Right now, I’m participating in the International Scarf Swap‘s Wishlist Swap.  The main idea is to choose a scarf pattern from your partner’s Ravelry favorites and make it!  This is a secret swap, so can’t tell you who the lucky recipient will be, but let’s just say this scarf has a long journey ahead of it.

First, I dug deep into my stash to see what I had on hand to match her favorite colors, and I happened to have one remaining skein of Cascade 220 Superwash in Pacific.

My partner had a great wishlist filled with all of these beautiful knit and crochet scarf, cowl, and shawl patterns.  I decided to make Ali Green‘s Seafoam Scarf because it looked simple enough to remember the pattern repeats without being boring enough to put me to sleep.

For me, this was a quick knit.  I finished it in just 4 days (including a holiday and a weekend, but remember I’m a slow knitter).

I secretly hoped it might get a bit longer after blocking.  After all, it’s just a one skein scarf.  But my partner mentioned she sometimes wears scarves in the summer, and this seems perfect for that.

I debated adding a button.  I like to have buttons on short scarves, but I didn’t find one that seemed to be asking to pair up with this scarf.
