The blocking of the coral colored Seaweed Scarf is now accomplished. And, the scarf has indeed grown a bit - it is almost seventeen inches down the spine and will wrap around my neck.
The edging is even more lovely now that it is blocked out. I am fascinated with the way that this scarf lays so wonderfully around my shoulders, back and front.
I still am thinking that the function can be enhanced if there are more rows of stockinette before the edging is worked.
This size - the pattern specified - would work wonderfully well under a coat or jacket. But, worn that way, the edge will be hidden. When worn "on top" I still want some way to lock it in position. Maybe a shawl pin or strategically placed buttons (for both function and adornment).
