Unusually, for a one-piece afghan this is a very portable project as you only work on a few stitches at a time. I knitted the whole of mine on a pair of children’s needles. There were never more than 30 stitches on the needle.
Not recommended for a complete beginner as there is a tricky bit at the start.
This is a good project for using up a quantity of yarn. It can be made to any size to use up the available yarn. It will need blocking when it is complete so will be bigger than it first appears.
Any type of yarn can be used. Smooth yarns are recommended. Textured yarns make it difficult to see where to connect the spirals.
Unlike most of our designs, Spinning a Yarn needs blocking when complete.
