A few months ago I showed you my first project using Whirl, my Endless Love Skinny Scarf. I really liked working with the yarn and I wanted to make a few more things using this versatile yarn. You know that feeling, wanting to start a new project? That is the feeling I had with this project too, itchy fingers just wanting to start!
Scheepjes Whirl Yarn
If you have not worked with Scheepjes Whirl before, let me quickly tell you a bit about it. Whirl is a cotton/acrylic mix yarn with a very slow color gradient. The yarn is twined and twisted to prevent splitting which makes it easy to work with. Each cake has 1000 meters of yarn on it, making it perfect for projects such as shawls and accessories. The cakes are available in 39 beautiful colorways. Scheepjes Whirl is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Knotty House (CA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) or your favorite Scheepjes stockist.

It is winter time and I wanted to make something warm for these cold months (or maybe not so cold actually, it has been very warm for this time of year) and I saw Carmen from New Leaf Designs combining Whirl with Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm and I thought to myself, what a great idea! I am going to do that too.
I am going to make a large and warm and cosy wrap. I am not sure on size just yet and that’s where the Whirlette comes in brilliantly. Whirlette is Whirl’s baby brother. It is a solid shade of the same yarn weight and is available in 15 shades to accompany many of the Whirls. Whirlette is great for adding a border or extending the first or last color of a Whirl. And that’s what I am planning to do also. I have chosen specifically a Whirl and Whirlette that have the same color so that I can extend my wrap if the Whirl is finished and I am not happy with the size.
I am going to start making the wrap and keep you posted about my progress.
