Sashay Crochet Chain Scarf
Have you seen these scarves? They're beautiful but finding that yarn around here is near impossible. One of my lovely sisters sent me some to play with, she caught it at a craft store near her for $5 a skein. She's in Florida so that might be the big difference.
I received two skeins, one in purple and one in burgundy. The purple one I made the frilly, ruffle way and the other I made into a chain scarf as seen in this video by Mikey from the Crochet Crowd.
Here's the difference between Mikey's scarf and mine; I didn't use the whole skein in one long chain.
Here's what I did: Pattern Sashay Crochet Chain Scarf
With a P hook and one skein of Red Heart Sashay yarn, leave a 6" tail and chain 80.
Chain one, sc second ch from hook and in each chain across. Tie off and cut leaving a 6" tail.
With remaining yarn and a size K hook, make a simple flower and sew it to the end opposite the 6" tails.
Now all I have left to do is decide on an embellishment for my flower. So many buttons! I may just leave it plain, I haven't decided yet. Oh and here's a pic of the purple skein. Love this one too!
So that's it for this week, nothing too hard or over the top. The chain scarf was super quick and super easy. You could make one to go with every outfit you have and it's not as bulky and cumbersome as a normal winter scarf, making it perfect for Spring - which is right around the corner!
Have a great week!
