The swirl took form and the colours grew together...

Its a bit brain-turn-off-activity of swirlcroching and the hand getting over... But my crafty reptilbrain took over a bit too early, so i just increased and increased and increased far beyond the magic line of "156 stiches etablished pattern part". Gnarf. So the swirl turned out slightely ruffled. No way Im ripping this up, so I decided to continued with the first piewedge anyway. Let me introduce: sweet liqourice with sparkly strawberryrippel! Grin

It is longer now and the rippel getting thinner and thinner. This wedge will be th bottompart and it will be long. My butt is frozen by nature, so i do prefer to cover it up, when the rain washes summer away...
I had to modified the pattern quite a bit for get the "right"(of me decired) rippleffekt. Qutte early i let the red yarn turn from dubbelchains to dingelchains. -and have it icreasing towards the middle.
To compention this I made trippelchain when turning the black yarn.

Then make to singlestiches of the red yarn, a dc...

..in the same time I crothed the black one inside the red one, so I wouldnt mess up the "red line" (oh, Im soo funny Tongue It is even more funny in swedish, we have this saying about "the red thread" meaning something wich keep the storys structure. Wink )Anyway, heres the pics too illustrade my messy blabbing.






--------------------------------------------------------
I feel this urge to put something in the middle of the swirl. I was thinking of a red heart or a skull or something. But then it struck me. An evil eye, blue as the sky! With the iris in swirlcroching!!!!!!!! But only in sc, in four different bright blue-s! Hii.
And that inspired me to plan even more traditionally evileyes. Two more, bigger swirleyes for attach on front-top of the hood...

Wow, I love the black and red Mynta! And I think an evil eye will look very cool Cheesy

My Swirl has been lying on the couch for a couple of days.. I've got more yarn, so the sleeves will be first green and then brown. But I'm thinking of ripping and removing the cables on the arms. They doesn't look very good in the brown yarn.. Maybe I can embroider something on the arms afterwards instead.

you guys who are working on it: it seems from the pics that the more it grows, the edges start to curl, kind of like the increasings aren't all that even. i was thinking about using that pattern for an afghan or tablecloth.. do you think it's adaptable?

It should be adaptable. I didn't find that the edges curled that much. You could flatten it out. And if you notice any curling you can just rip a bit and decrease less. But with blocking you shouldn't have any problems.

Last uppdates. The bottonskirt of my cardigan (or maybe coat by now? It is long, goes to the back of my knees. Tongue)
Im very pleased how the ripples turned out. Just the way I wanted them! Kiss


Closer pic on the sleevehole.
 
This pic allso illustrate the diffences betwenn my choice of reds.
 Cry The black yarnball is my last of this yarn. It will not last for the shirt. I really hope I can find some more. (going to shop yarn, stach and thread this week, anywAY!!!!!! Grin)


I allso finished my three blue swirly eyes. One are suppose to be placed in the middle on the big swirl, the two other on the pointed hood I plan to give my cardigan.

Those eyes wherer so fun too make, I will absolutely make more of those! They will look nice on armwarmers, placed i the palm, on fruitcozys, on jugglingballs.... Unlimeted possibilites! Cheesy
