Curlicue Coverlet

I purchased the Curlicue Coverlet pattern a couple of years ago only because of it's interesting construction, but didn't think it looked particularly spectacular when knit in a solid colorway. It was when I saw what creative knitters did with multiple colors and variegated selections that the pattern came alive and got me going. Beautiful, colorful swirls of stitches with a scalloped edge.

For me, the pattern is not an easy one! There is constant counting, getting a mental gripe for the directions of the short rows certainly didn't come easy to me with lots of second guessing on that first center section. After frogging the first center wedge #5 three times and much freaking out, I finally wrapped my mind around the construction and the process is now quite enjoyable. Trust me, now that I have this pattern moving along I will be loyal to the completion of the coverlet. This swirls of stitches should be ready for blocking within the week!

Love, love, love! Gorgeous use of Noro! And that pattern is mind boggling. I may have to try it myself.
