Giotto Curly Whirlie

After a marathon finishing session last night, here is the completed curly whirlie scarf:

Apologies for the camera flash effect, the quality of daylight is quite poor at the moment.

Yarn: Colinette Giotto cotton/rayon tape, shade Raphael
Pattern: based on UKnitty's pattern, with changes as noted below
Needles: 8mm, 80cm Addi Turbo circular needle
Yardage: around 180g / 260 yards (2 skeins required)

I think this came out quite well, and is certainly a better use for this yarn, which tends to sag in a flat knitted piece!

I cast on 150 stitches and followed the pattern as written until the 6th row after the second increase (600 stitches). At this point I knit two more rows, then cast off without doing the final increase.

There is another 120g-ish of this yarn left, and I may well make another scarf using this and some plain black Patons Whisper. That's me off to join the Curly Whirlie blog then!

Hey, yay me! New house! Fryingly warm yesterday, today a cold change hit and it is raining right at this very minute. And you've had snow and a cold snap. Weird
Love the curly whirly scarf. I can feel one or 10 coming on - I am unpacking the stash and I have a little too much yarn I think.
Happy New Year :-)
