I’ve finally finished my second Scheepjes Whirl Shawl – this is my Liquorice Whirl Shawl!! I’m happy with how it has turned out, the only thing I wish was that it was slightly shorter, as you can see from these pictures its turned into a monster!
I can get it to wrap around me nicely though to keep me warm and I am really happy with the way that the transition has worked out.
I ended up chopping some of the white and grey sections out of each ball to make it shorter, but could have gone further with that I think. The pattern was really simple to work and as always, the Whirl yarn was lovely to work with.
I’m going to give another of these designs a try I think!!

I’m also working on a new Scheepjes Whirl Shawl using Blueberry Bam Bam. You can see a sneek preview in this post here.
EDIT September 2017: This pattern is now available here!
If you’re into shawls and fancy a knitted one, I’m also working on an assymetrical shawl design which you can see some of in this post here

I love this shawl! Found it while looking up projects for Whirl and bought the pattern… only to find that it’s a chart! Was it easy to follow? Do you think 1 ball would be sufficient?
hello. it was super-easy to follow and I made it using 2 balls. it is big as you can see! I think you’d have to modify to make it for one ball. you might want to make it shorter (depth) so you get more width to wrap around your shoulders? I think I put what I did to modify the pattern for whirl on my Ravelry project page. I’m about to release a new pattern which has been designed for one ball of whirl. so if you wanted to wait you could try that? it’s currently being tested and I hope to release in a couple of weeks?
