    $\begingroup$ Why bother with twisted selection. Use a texture. $\endgroup$ – Mzidare Oct 25 '16 at 8:18

    $\begingroup$ @atek - I agree with Mzidare. Using a texture (a 2d image of diagonal red and white stripes) wrapped around the cylinder allows you to keep the cylinder geometry simple, which should produce smoother and faster renders. $\endgroup$ – Gavin Lock Oct 25 '16 at 13:46

Create a circle and go into edit mode. I adjusted the number of vertices to 16.

In the Properties Panel, add a Screw Modifier to the object. Set the axis to Z and raise the Screw property until the proportions are correct.

Apply the modifier if you wish.
