I first saw Swirl a couple of days ago. And immediately fell in love. I knew that I HAD to make it. So I started.



I don't like grey and I don't have the amount needed of a single yarn. So I thought 'Why not make it in scrap yarn?'. And thus it became the Scrap-Swirl. Right now I'm using Noro blossom, some wool/nylon sock blend, a wool/cotton blend and a wool yarn I dyed a couple of years ago. The not-swirly part of the sweater wrap will be striped in different yarns and colours.. And if I'm adventurous I'll change the pattern on the arms. I'm not so fond of that.

Anyone else want to join me? The swirl itself is easy, but I've never crocheted anything this big before so I am kind of scared..
You know you can't resist the Swirl! Wink

Thank you!

I've just completed the swirl. So far no problems at all. At least not if you don't count me missing where I should have stopped and continuing for another round Wink I'll go on to the pie wedges tomorrow, time for some sleep now. I'm wondering if I can work the wedges in one piece since I'll be making them striped and not in one colour as in the pattern.. But that is a question for tomorrow Smiley

I've had my eye on that pattern for awhile. The colors you chose are so beautiful! I'll be watching this thread.

I need more people to join in, because now it's getting trickier! Wink

I've started the first wedge, and stopped after a while because I want to see how big it gets. I'm a quite small person so I don't want to drown in it.. So I continued to the second one. I hope I've understood the directions. It seems like you shouldn't try to join the wedges now (but I can't see why, that must be easier to do). So I've just crocheted a couple of rows on wedge two so far.

Wedge two is in the bottom part of the picture. Now that I see the picture I actually want the top in the picture to be the top, not the right part of the picture as it is going to be, due to how the swirl looks Undecided Oh well.. I'll get over it, and maybe crochet another one later.. I still like this one, even though it isn't perfect.

The finished garment will consist of a big circle with two arms in it, if I've understood correctly. So the wedges are the outer parts of the circle. The solid coloured parts outside the swirl Smiley

Mynta: Yay! It's nice to see someone else doing this! I think your version will look fabulous Cheesy

I've been crocheting for a while now..

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2183/2288517280_ff296e7396_o.jpg

I do not like patterns that's hard to try on while you're making them.. It's too small over my bust, it's too big in the back below my waist and it's a bit too small in the back between my arms..

To rip or not to rip..

Right now I'm hoping that the bust issue will be better because I've added a couple of rows in that area, and that the back will look better when I can close it properly.

I should have continued on the swirl for a couple of rows more. And I'm not sure this pattern is made for small and short people like me Undecided
