Create a 3D twirl object

Hi everyone,

Need your help. I’m quite a newbie in Blender and I’m looking to create this twirly object.

Actually, I really don’t know where I can begin and how to do it.
Can you help me on this matter?

Many thanks!

  1. Use a cylinder with a radius of 32 edges.
  2. Select every other edge and scale.
  3. add horizontal loops.
  4. adjust the shape using the horizontal loops you added
  5. add finishing bevels and smooth modifier to get a similar shape to the one you posted

At step four you could use proportional editing when selecting the top loop and twisting the whole thing. I think thats easier or maybe you meant it.
