Hey everyone! I tried the corkscrew fringe last night based on the instructions above and it works great.

Now I have been dying to try a scarf that is corkscrew..I have seen them around..just can't seem to find a pattern for it..I don't really want to buy a whole book either just for one pattern..

Anyone know if I could use this simple 2 row fringe pattern and expand it to make a scarf in a corkscrew..or anyone know where I can locate a pattern(hopefully something online) that will make a corkscrew design?

Go to Google then type in cork screw scarfs. The first you will see when the links come up is www.loop-d-loop.com

The reason i am telling to do a google search is i went to the site typing in the link and saw different pictures than what i got from google.

I like the CSFS'S they show on this site. Hope you do too!

I wonder if you could make thick fringe, and then curl it with a curling iron while the yarn is slightly damp? Or maybe hair curlers?

I am a newly wed and was wondering where to get a pattern for the willie warmers as we will be soon moving to the mountains where it is cold

Here is a pattern for a willie warmer, which can be seen on this site along with other anatomically correct knitting projects. We were talking about this on a different thread a little while ago (sometime in early February?), but I searched like crazy and still couldn't find the thread... however here is another thread on a related topic.

Unfortunatly, we don't have pic on here of a willie warmer being modeled, in case your DH is interested. It could bring him fame and fortune!

Imagine my embarrassment upon discovering (after THIS transpired of course) that pfttec is none other than my very own mother

But I'm glad she joined anyway :D Guess I'd better be nice from now on!
