A super fun technique, that is one of my favorites, it the Spiral or Curly-Que. I use it for the tops of my pumpkin hats:
Step #1: You can use any size of hook. The bigger the hook, the thicker the spiral and visa versa. With your chosen hook make a chain the length you want your spiral to be.
Step #2: Now, you will turn and in the second chain from the hook make two single crochets.
Step #3: Do 2 sc in every chain all the way down. Is it curling? It should!
There you go! Now don't be afraid of playing with it! Go over it again with a different color and make some edging if you want like my school spirit hat above. Or maybe try it with a larger stitch. It's all up to you! Now go have fun!!
Comment Fun: All you crocheters out there, what is the cutest or funnest way you have used the spiral technique? Leave a comment and/ or a link with some pictures!
