Corkscrew Scarf
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 book has a pattern for one.

Corkscrew Scarf
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_ID=27751

another crochet: http://www.techchick.lunarpages.com/...al_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.

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

Hi-

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.

Carol
