Hi everyone,
After much reading and looking at everyone's pics, I checked out S&B from the local library and decided on the One Skein Scarf...

I love the color (some random light green wool no label that was in my stash) and followed the directions for chaining with the larger hook, but made my shells a little smaller (4 dc instead of 5) and my beautiful scarf is all curly (lie those spiral looking scarves out there)! I wish I could post a pic so you all could see what happened.

Do you think that blocking and steaming would help? It's so pretty I don't want to undo it.

Any advice will be appreciated, thanks.

Kaladala Embarrassed sort of sad cuz her scarf doesn't look all pretty like other posters'

Too much yarn, too little time.

You get spirals and squiggles in crochet when you put 'too much' or 'too little' stuff (stitches) into a space - kinda like ruffles formed by sewing a longer piece of fabric to a smaller hem. I guess that's what's happened here; the waves are too small to hold the fabric flat, so push it into a spiral. OK, you've probably figured that out.

It sounds like it might be too fundamentally non-flat to be flattened by blocking...

...then again, from how you've described it, the scarf still sounds pretty, just in a different way.

Sorry, this hasn't been very helpful.
