Hey all! I wanted to make a swirl Round for Christmas, and It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted, but it was a really good learning experience for me!  I wanted it to look like a Starlite mint, and it does...... kinda. I think I would have gotten more like what i wanted if I had used sc instead of dc for the whole thing... It also would have hidden the red yarn being carried behind the white rows a little better if it had been single crochet, too. Has anyone else made some stuff with swirl patterns? Post Post Post! I have seen the bluish swirl cap that is in this forum somewhere... was it called a pageboy cap? Cant remember,... but it was awesome!  I have also seen instructions somewhere for a different type of 3 color swirl.. I'll try to find that and post it..... Don't be a lurker!  Cheesy If you're interested in swirl patterns, post!  Happy weekend, everybody!

I'm trying to figure out how it works by looking at it....

The BellaOnline pattern would not have produced the same effect as the spirals wrap around each other (like a shell) rather than expanding outward.

Seamstress, however did you do it?!?

Well, It's all in dc, I chained like 7 or something, and did as many dc's as it took to make a small circle that would lay flat, and I alternated the color with each stitch, carrying the other color. Then, I did my ch 3 to get up the the next level and kind of eyeballed it as to where i wanted to change colors as I went around. At some point halfway through the project, I converted from ch 3 up to the next row, to actually spiraling around and around the work, with no 'rising to the next row' not sure how I pulled that off.

wow. i'm really into this! i think it would be really cool to make an afghan in that style. make it a really big circle then crochet a square around it once it's the size you want. i think i might try that. thanks for sharing <3
