Super Long Spiral Boa

Spiral Rainbow scarf for Wendy

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.

I wanted the project to be a surprise, but I also wanted her to know I had a project in the works. Yeah, I’m funny like that. I shared this photo as a teaser!

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.

Finish off.

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.

Did you watch today’s TTMT? I made a matching hat using Amber (of Amber’s Originals) Bella at the Beach (on ravelry).
