I had never heard of "curls" until my son bought me the book of the same name by Hunter Hammersen as a Christmas present. A curl is a triangular shaped scarf/shawl which, due to its ingenious construction, curls round at the pointed end. There are various ways of wearing this versatile accessory. You can make a curl as big or as small as you like. I decided to stop knitting at just over 2 skeins of DK linen yarn (Mulberry).
Here is the result.
Knitting a swatch and checking your gauge....
We all know that knitting a swatch is an essential part of knitting a project where size is critical.
A few years ago I got fed up with trying to get my measuring tape straight and counting the stitches. Having access to acrylic fabrication equipment and material through our sister company, Acrylicraft Ltd, I decided to make myself a useful acrylic tool. I now have several of these dotted around the house, just an arm's length away from my knitting.
These are now available here in our shop in 7 different colours.
