When I first started to knit, I found a numbers of patterns on helix scarf that shaped like the DNA models that we read in science textbook. While the finished product appeared elegant, the pattern usually involved short rows, turning, and wrapping (all of the skills that is particular challenging for a person who can barely tell her right from left). By passing, I came across this twirling scarf with simpler instructions, but still gave me a chance to attempt short rows. It was interesting to see how the scarf just started to spiral!
If you are interested to make one for yourself, you may find the pattern here.

|Yes, it stands on its own!|
|It resembles a flower when it is coiled.|
