Swirl Scarf
My daughter picked the pattern Swirl Shawl for a scarf. The designer, Lijuan Jing has changes for a scarf version of the shawl. You were supposed to make 3 rows of the motifs but I thought that was too wide. I scaled the motifs down to suit my bigger yarn, and they still turned out 4" across like the pattern stated. James C. Brett Marble acrylic yarn, "killed" for this scarf.

Me modeling. Yes, DD loves green too.

That came out really pretty! I like that yarn, I'm using the bulky for a sweater right now. How did you kill it? I know what it means, just wondering how you did it.

I was going to pin it out and hover my steam iron over it until damp. But my steam iron seems to have given up on me, and even the dry setting didn't seem as hot as it should have.

I pinned it out and then put a double layer of wet wash cloth over the scarf in sections and set the dry iron on hot lightly on the cloth, no weight really. Just floating. I let it sit until fully dry. My sample I put a little pressure on as I applied the heat and it flattened the design a little so I tried to avoid that happening. I notice the edges wanting to curl a little and I think if my iron had been hotter it would have stayed flatter.

It's gorgeous !! A lady in my knit night group is working a shawl in this pattern. It is definitely on my list of things to do, but I am afraid I wouldn't have the patience to keep at it long enough
