I love this lacy scarf pattern. They are called corkscrew scarves or curly whirlies. I've made some for sale (see the for sale items on the right side bar). This one is made with Patons Lace yarn. It's very soft and delicate and machine washable but drying flat is recommended. If you feel ambitious, there are some links to knitting patterns below.
