Sunburst Motifs in a Woolly Whirl WIP.

Updated: May 30, 2021

I am finding it quite soothing to work a pattern repeat and just watch the colours change. This is Bubble Lickcious 474 from Scheepjes. My lacey motifs to break up the solid stitches look like sunbursts and I am going to call this project the Sunburst Scarf!

The pattern repeat is easy to learn so it’s a relaxing project, but there is something a little different about the way I am working the cluster stitches, and I have a specific vision for how I want the ends to look.

All will be revealed soon as this pattern will be available free on my blog, and a paid version will be available from my pattern stores on Ravelry and Etsy if you would like to support my designs or prefer an ad-free PDF download.

A Woolly Whirl yarn cake is 1000m long and my plan is to use all of it. Bring on the yarn chicken…. A good way to manage facing-off with the chicken is to weigh the project between pattern repeats. This way you can estimate how many patt reps you want to work before the change at the end of the scarf. You will see what that is next week in the finished pics!

Here the sunbursts are stretching out on my couch: 500m down and 500m to go! -ISH

It’s always good to check how a WIP looks on a model, and my Veronica mannequin happened to be sporting my Bessie Alice Tweed Coat when I wanted to take a quick pic. Not bad though, the pink certainly sits well against black or other dark colours!
