Vibrant Corkscrew Scarf – Knitted Pattern


Here it is wrapped around the mannequin numerous times.


This scarf is so quick and very easy to knit. If you know how to do garter stitch then you can make this scarf no problem. Select your yarn according to the type of effect you hope to achieve. Here I have use a combination of eyelash yarn and bubble yarn and a plain DK yarn to finish.


You can control the fluidity or flexibility by choosing a soft yarn. If you select a stiffer yarn obviously your corkscrew will be more tightly coiled.

You can create an unlimited assortment of different results by using different yarns and different sizes of knitting needles.



Circular needle (32cm) – 9mm

150-200gm Yarn of your choice


Length: 60” or 153cm Width: 3” or 8cm

Cast on 400 stitches (increase if you want a longer scarf)

I should like to make one just like this as a holiday gift for my sister. Could you please tell me which yarns you chose-brands, weights, and how much of each. I would like it to be as curly as yours and I know my sister would love it for Christmas. It's lovely! Thank you. MaryJane from New Hampshire (US)

Interesting variation. Most of the spiral/ruffle scarf patterns I've seen start with a smaller number of stitches & work up to 900 or 1000 stitches. This is the 1st I've encountered that works down & on a manageable number. Good job.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy making it.
