  • 00:00: we decorated our tiger's head with corkscrew spirals and today I'll show you how to crochet them corkscrew spirals are based on a chain I start with a slip stitch into the top of the head and I work the first five chains with both threads with a starting thread and the working thread so I avoid suing
  • 00:32: the starting thread so five chains with both threads and I continue with twenty-five more chains you work the chain approximately double as long as the proposed spiral so I start with
  • 01:01: chain 30 and into the second chain from the hook you work for single crochets in contrary to the usual procedure you only pick up one strand of every chain usually working into a chain you would pick up two strands of every chain so you work
  • 01:30: for single crochets into every chain up to the last chain into every chain 4 single crochets soon you will see how the spiral evolves here I'm at the last chain again 4 single crochets into the last chain as well but that's not the
  • 02:05: end of the story there are several ideas you can work with those spirals next spiral I start with 20 with chain 20
  • 02:30: and now I will work each for single crochets into the first six chains three four so six times four single crochets into
  • 03:02: every chain then six times four half double crochets into every chain and again six times four single crochets so that makes our spiral a little more wide in the middle
  • 03:34: so while the first spiral has an even width from the beginning to the end this one has a little belly in the middle it's still elastic and that gives me the idea that this would be a nice Christmas tree decoration imagine little colored fur cones for your Christmas tree and
  • 04:01: for this I start with chain 25 and I start again with four single crochets into the first five chains I
  • 04:32: continue with five times four half double crochets into the next five chains next I'm going to crochet five times four double crochets into the next five chains and again five times four
  • 05:05: half double crochets and at the end five times four single crochets into every chain so this makes a tiny fir cone or a little corkscrew spiral small at
  • 05:31: the beginning and at the end and wider in the middle I worked five corkscrew spirals into the top of our Tycho's head and with this wonderful rainbow yarn it makes a very funny head not only for
  • 06:02: children enjoy and use those cork screws prior spirals for many other ideas you
