Simone's Scarf or the Double Whirly

simone's double whirly by Miriam MackYarn: Blue Skies Alpaca sport weight (2 skeins)
Hook: L

  • Crochet a no-chain, single crochet base for desired length (I alway use my couch as a scarf length gauge) Here's a tutorial for making the chainless foundation stitch. You can also find excellent videos on Youtube. It's a wonderful skill to add to your crochet repertoire and makes that first row so much easier.

  • R2: Increase row, single crochet (SC) into each stitch twice

  • R3 SC across
  • R4: Increase row, SC into each stitch twice

  • R5 SC across

  • Fasten off

  • SC across caston edge (same number of stitches as in caston)

  • Repeat rows 2-5

  • fasten off and weave in ends

  • block if desired and twirl up both sides of scarf

Hi Miriam,
I just wondered if it would be okay to add a link to the sidebar of Curly Whirlies blog to the pattern for the double whirly on your blog? Can you let me know, please? Thanks.
