I'm making a pumpkin hat and the pattern only calls for a leaf but I want to add a skinny little curly-Q vine too...any ideas how I might do this? I thought about just crocheting up a strip and seeing if it turns on itself, but I'm not sure that would happen...

Thanks!

Curl is created through unevenness, so one side of the vine must have more stitches than the other side.

Hope that makes sense.

Knit a 3 stitch I-cord.
Round 1: k all stitches
Round 2: k2tog, kfb
Repeat ad infinitum. That should do it You might want to twiddle with the number of plain rows between the decrease/increase rows, but it'll get you a curl.

Thanks for the suggestions...I ended up just crocheting a 6-inch chain and then crocheting one row on top of that and it curled on it's own...looks pretty darn cute, if you ask me!
