Lovely pattern, easy to make!
I enjoy working on one of Kirsten's patterns. They are clearly written and easy to follow. Pictures and a chart included. This pattern also has workings for different widths therefore different lengths. I am not using the same whirl but one I had in my stash (blackcurrant squeeze me and ice whirlettes.)
