Every once in a while, I get an idea that will not leave me alone. I have a friend named Wendy. She loves rainbows. LOVES. Like loves adores worships…you get the picture. I had wanted to make her something rainbow-worthy for a while, when I came across a skein of Red Heart Kids in Crayon, which inspired me to create an awesome, HUGE scarf for her.
This is part guidelines, part pattern. It’s super simple and works up really quickly.
Super Long Spiral Boa
- ~4 oz of worsted weight yarn
- Size H or I hook
Loosely cochet an RLC (Really Long Chain). Mine was about 6′ long and reached to my knees. Yours can be shorter or longer.
Row 1 – sc in to the third ch from the hook, and in each ch across. Chain 3, turn
Row 2 – 4 DC in the same st as the turning ch, 5 DC in each st across.
See, I told you it was easy!
When you get done, your spiral is likely to not be 100% spirally. Not to worry! Find a place to hang your scarf…a hook, a clothesline, your bff, etc. Working from one end of the scarf to the other, make sure all the spirals, well, spiral! It might take a few minutes, but it will be worth your effort.
