The Rows of Star Stitches, Rows 50 and 51 of the pattern, were made with the yellow yarn at the centre of the second Rosewater Cocktail Whirl.

The yarn was cut at the end of Row 51.

Row 52 was made continuing with the yarn of the first Whirl, up until the end of part 4, finishing with the dark blue


I started Part 5, Row 61, continuing with the yellow from the centre of the second Rosewater Cocktail Whirl until the last Row of Part5, Row 66, which I worked in the Citrus Whirlette.

(with hindsight I wish I had worked this row in either dark blue or turquoise so that it showed up the sunburst pattern more)

Part 6

Part 6 continued with the Rosewater Cocktail until Row 71.

  5. The way the colors are working on this, quite an amazing feat here! It reminds me of sunrise and sunset, all T the same time. You are a magician at swapping those two color groups out!

  7. This is unbelievable! Your colors are what makes it special, although, I admit, the crocheting is fascinating as well. But the colors–wow!!

    • Thank you Kerry, the graduated colours makes it kinda glow don’t they. I have to thank Scheepjes for the colours.
      These Whirls are fun to work with. I’d love to make something else with them – not sure what yet.


  8. I am so in awe of your creations! SO deeply exciting and visually engaging. Graeme asks how big is this piece of art? Lxxxx

  9. It’s like some kind of magical sun burst – I love it! I really like the way you are using the yarn too, I think I may have said that before.
