spirally scarf

I love the idea of a curlique scarf...

Only problem is, that because you are generally increasing in every stitch... each row is longer and longer than the last. By the time you reach that final row... it seems to go on for an eternity!

I've made this one using a 4.0mm bamboo hook, and some reclaimed wool. The wool came from a top which had belonged to my mum... so the scarf now has sentimental value to me. I like to wrap it around my neck a couple of times, and it feels like a great big warm, reassuring hug.

This spiral scarf is a Lisa Gentry design, you can click here to buy the pattern. I did make a slight modification to the final round. I wanted a more 'picotty' edging, so instead of working 4sc, I worked (2sc, 3ch, 2sc) into each space.

I started this scarf in winter... but it's now almost summer here! In fact, we have had quite the heat wave - so I don't think I'll be wearing it any time soon...

I love your new scarf. I'm sure it'll be your favourite, especially with the emotional value you have attached to it.
