TWIRLY WHIRLY FOR MY LITTLE GIRLS


I made these
TWIRLY WHIRLY
scarves for my little girls














TWIRLY WHIRLY SCARF 
9mm circular needle.
3 balls wool - assorted
Cast on 80 stitches (or 100 if you would like it long or more)
Garter stitch 4 rows
Next row - knit, purl, knit into each stitch across row
(change wool)
Garter stitch 4 rows
Next row - knit, purl into each stitch
(change wool)
Garter stitch 4 rows.
Cast off.


I cast on with a plain yarn, then the next 4 rows something different,
and then on the last lot of knitting 4 rows, I changed to a pretty funky texture.
Enjoy casting off, because you can hardly wait to see how it twirls, and seems to take forever.
Have fun!! 
and here's how to make a TWIRLY WHIRLY CURL
