Does any one know where I might find the pattern for the corkscrew scarf? The scarf requires 3 balls of Noro kureyon. I can't seem to locate the book or pattern. I could have knitted half the scarf in the time I have spent looking!!

I think this (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1564776220/002-5661825-0243218) book has a pattern for one.

Thanks for the link. This could have what I am looking for, I'll have to wait a few weeks for the release date. That is OK-----hope I won't need a wool scarf for a few months.
I also found a refernce to "Scarf Style" by Pam Allen. I'll see what that scarf looks like.
Thanks for helping!

If you can crochet this is this free pattern: http://www.fuzzygalore.biz/patterns/spiral.shtml

oooh - found a free knit one... http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27751

another crochet: http://www.techchick.lunarpages.com/knottie/crafts/spiral_scarf.shtml

Guess it just depends on what you want to call it!

Thanks, Carol. I unfortunately do not crochet. Knitters Review for some reason does not match my computer settings. I have been there previously, but today I am getting an error message. I will try again later or hire a 10 year old to fix the problem! Thank you for your suggestions.

This is called a potato chip scarf....is it what you are looking for? The pattern is free.

Thank you. The potato chip scarf is smaller than the corkscrew. I appreciate your trying though.

The knittersreview forum pattern:
Cast on 90 sts
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit into front and back of every stitch
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit into front and back of every stitch
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Knit into front and back of every stitch
Row 7: Knit
Bind off

I used less than two skeins of Trendsetter Dune with #13 needles. Apparently using larger needles and a thinner yarn helps the spirals. Glad you like it!

Obviously I haven't tried it, so I have no idea if it's 'good'. The picture she posted of her finished scarf looked good though.

Look up Curly Whirly on google and youll find a whole bunch of different patterns! :XX:

Dont use Lion Brand WoolEase Thick and Quick to make it though...mine looks all fuzzy and horrible now and I just made it last month!

When I designed the Moonlight Mohair potato chip scarf for Lion Brand, they asked for a knitted version (and they wanted to have it made out of Homespun). Unfortunately they haven't published the pattern yet. I wish I could give it to you, as it's quick and different than a lot of the others out there. However, I will say now that had I chosen the yarn I would not have chosen Homespun. It seems to take a long time for them to get the patterns published; I guess they take new designs to trade shows around the country prior to publishing them. I'll be sure to run here and tell all of you first if/when I see it published, though.
Unfortunately, even though it's my own pattern I can't give it out as they purchased the design and now own the rights to it.

There are a lot of corkscrew scarves at the Crystal Palace site:

This is the spiral scarf I did from Lion Brand's website (sorry- my browser doesn't let me do active links!):

If for some reason this doesn't go to the pattern then just go to Lion Brand's website and do a search for a spiral scarf.
