The existence of an eigenvalue embedded in the continuous spectrum is proved for the Neumann problem for Helmholtz's equation in a two-dimensional waveguide with two outlets to infinity which are half-strips of width 1 and 1 - epsilon, where epsilon > 0 is a small parameter. The width function of the part of the waveguide connecting these outlets is of order root epsilon; it is defined as a linear combination of three fairly arbitrary functions, whose coefficients are obtained from a certain nonlinear equation. The result is derived from an asymptotic analysis of an auxiliary object, the augmented scattering matrix.
