We study Friedel oscillations in one-dimensional electron liquid for arbitrary electron-electron interaction and arbitrary impurity strength. For Luttinger liquid leads, the Friedel oscillations decay as x^-g far away from the impurity, where g is the interaction constant. For a weak scatterer, a slower decay is found at intermediate distances from the impurity, with a crossover to the asymptotic x^-g law.
