A huge congratulations to Lorelei – one of the Mouths of Mums contributors.  She’s expecting her fourth child this winter!  And knowing her, she’ll sail through and still be contributing all sorts of beautiful craft, kitchen treats and birthday wonders.  This post, she shows us just how easy it can be to jazz up any outfit with a spiral scarf …

Ok I think I’m a little obsessed with spiral scarfs! This time I wanted to try a crochet one when I found a pattern in an old copy of Spotlight’s ‘Get Creative’ magazine. If you don’t have any of their magazines there are also a few free patterns on the net if you search for ‘crochet spiral scarf pattern’ like here and here. For most of them it’s pretty simple, you crochet a long chain and then treble crochet into each one along the chain, then the next row you do two treble crochet into each and the same again on the next row so you end up with a spiral.

I had this yarn in my stash already which was also from Spotlight. Easy to crochet and it went together very quickly.  This scarf has a light and lacy feel to it compared with my last spiral scarf which was knitted.

Can you notice the bulging tummy? I’m pregnant with our fourth child! Yes we’re very excited to be expecting a winter baby for a change. That being said you can expect a few baby items on the blog over the next 6 months but I can’t promise that this will be my last spiral scarf as I’m thinking I’d like to make a soft white feminine one with a decorative edge to it. Yes I’m still hooked on crochet at the moment and usually when I’m pregnant I love to cross stitching to relax me but this time I’ve gone crochet crazy. Hope you’re enjoying the projects.

Is anyone else keen to try and make a spiral scarf? Or anything else for that matter.  Visit Lolly’s blog at www.craftsmumship.com

  • I’ve passed this on to my sister, as she has a real love affair with yarn. So do my mother and I, but our arthritis prevents us from doing as much as we used to. We get a lot of our yarn from Op shops, and end-of-season sales, and knit & crochet rugs and things for homeless shelters and animal rescue organizations.


  • I’ll take crochet over knitting any day. Pretty scarf and congratulations.


  • I should check this out. I love knitting but have never been able to get my head around crochet.


  • Perfect time of the year to pick up the crochet hook or knitting needles. My daughter has already finished her new scarf, on jumbo needles. She made so it quick and was really happy with the results.


  • Nice! my mum is an incredibly talented ‘crocheter’, I simply admire!


  • That is such a pretty scarf & congratulations on the gorgeous bump :)


  • Thanks for sharing, someone will have to teach me to crochet.


  • I love crochet, would like to crochet a cowl scarf.


  • About time I did something for myself while have a look at it.


  • Just teaching myself how to crochet at the moment with a few humble granny squares, once I get the flow going a bit better I know what my next project will be ;) perfect to get ready for Autumn I say!
