Name That Scarf Contest

I’m writing up the pattern for this scarf and I need a name:

So I’m turning to all of you.

E-mail me your suggestions by midnight, Feb 2. If I choose your name, you will get to choose from the fabulous yarn prizes below. And to encourage the non-fiberphiles who read my blog, if I choose your name and you don’t want yarn, I’ll send you chocolate instead. As a second prize, I’ll draw a name from everyone who enters and they will get the remaining yarn.

The Prizes:

1 ball of Opal Mosaik Sock Yarn in purples. One ball is enough to make a pair of socks or gloves:

2 balls of Blue Sky Alpaca, sportweight, 120yds/ball in bright royal blue (perhaps not quite as bright as the photo). Very soft. The two balls are different dye lots, but they look identical to me under my OttLite:

People, put your thinking caps on!

    […] Don’t forget about the Name That Scarf Contest! […]

  3. Hazel:


    I just came across your site and I love the scarf you’ve created! Your email link wasn’t working so I thought I’d post my name suggestions here. Hows about:

    Twisted Chevrons Scarf (which is exactly what it is, I think), or

    The Accidentally on Purpose Scarf (because you created the pattern inadvertently but you are happy with the result!

    I never win anything but I thought I’d put in my two pennies worth anyway! ;-)

  4. Hazel:

    P.S. I’m an administrator for the Curly Whirlies blog http://curlywhirlies.blogspot.com
    When your pattern is written, I just wondered, if you don’t mind, if I could please put a link to it in the sidebar of Curly Whirlies blog?

  5. Annie Driscoll:


    That’s my entry in the Name That Scarf contest. I think in invokes evolution (from Clapotis), plain ole volution (twisting in a spiral), revolution (your fiesty nature in design), and even involution.

    As well as a shout out to the X-generation and X-games!

  6. Wendy:

    Your scarf looks like the double helix that is formed with our DNA. So, I will suggest Double Helix or DNA as a scarf name. Here is a picture of it, just to prove what I am saying… http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/dynamicImages/understandGenetics/basics/DNA.jpg

  7. Dharma:

    Whirligig. But in looking up a photo this isn’t quite the word I thought it was. This site: http://www.flyinginsect.com/Wind-Ornaments-p-2-c-253.html has something like what I mean.

    I was going to make the same suggestion as Wendy, Helix. Not double though, because it looks more like a single helix to me.

    In searching for the image in my head I found this: http://www.shop.com/op/aprod-p13371181-k24-g4-~outdoor+rainbow+ornaments-nover?sourceid=3

    So maybe, Twirler Scarf.

    I could always use chocolate!

    […] In the meantime, if you haven’t contributed an entry for the scarf-naming contest, you have 24 more hours left. The pattern is all ready to post, as soon as the prototype is finished. And it gets a name… […]

  9. Lisa:

    How about Tilt-a-Whirl
    Meandering Scarf
    Tendril Scarf
    Loop It
    It’s such a cute pattern. Good luck picking a name!

    Thanks for your ideas. One thing we’ve noticed is banks as well as financial institutions know the spending habits of consumers as well as understand that the majority of people max away their credit cards around the breaks. They correctly take advantage of this particular fact and then start flooding a person’s inbox in addition to snail-mail box by using hundreds of Zero APR card offers immediately after the holiday season concludes.
