Picking up Colors

Similar in color to the Curry Plant is Santolina,
a sturdy small evergreen shrub
with silvery haired leaves and
tiny yellow bud-like flowers, easy to keep in a pot as well. All of this musing on colors of Mediterranean shrubs is, of course, leading up to a project...

In this ruffle curlicue scarf, I picked up the color of the leaves of the Curry and Santolina plants and the Chinese Blue glaze of the pot, knitted and crocheted in a curlicue pattern. I increase every 5th stitch in the second and every 10th stitch in the fifth row. The chrochet rows are alternately made with Turkish crochet stitches, or are crocheknit.
