Seaweed Stole/Scarf

The idea for this stole originated from a kayak trip. This past August my brother and I went on a 4 1/2 hr. kayak trip. I didn’t have a waterproof container for my camera so wasn’t able to take it along, although later I wished I had been able to. The scenery along the way was stunning! It was a beautiful day for kayaking; sunny, not too hot, and with a gentle breeze.
While we were gliding down the river I noticed the seaweed (not sure what the technical term would be, we’ll just call it seaweed) that was streaming along with the river’s current. It had tall, long leaves, and all sorts of beautiful colors. Right away I though it would be wonderful to dye some yarn in those colors. The main colors were shades of green, yellow, chartreuse, and a mauve-ish pink.
The next day I had the opportunity to over-dye a skein of my handspun in the exact colors, while they were still fresh in my memory. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to design a pattern that went with my seaweed theme.
This pattern is perfect because the waves in the feather and fan design reflect not only the movement of the water, but also the graceful motion of the seaweed as it ripples in the water.

I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I did!
