Easy Frilly Knit Scarf Using Sashay Yarn

Easy Frilly Knit Scarf

Taking up knitting has been on my to-do list for awhile now, but it's one of those things that repeatedly just keeps getting pushed to the back burner...


Sashay Yarn

So I was really excited to find out that Walmart was sending me some of this new Boutique Sashay Yarn to try. I figured this was just the push I needed to dive in and get started!

Knitting with Sashay Yarn

The first thing you'll notice is that Sashay yarn is very different from a traditional strand of yarn. When you unwind it, you'll see that it looks more like a ribbon of silky, already knitted yarn. One side is mostly straight, and the other side is ruffly with a touch of metallic thread running through it.

Priced at just $4.67 per skein, it's a fantastic value because one ball of yarn is all that's needed to knit a scarf! I used the frilly knit scarf pattern that can be downloaded from the Red Heart website and followed the instructions for the long 62" scarf. However, if you don't knit, I understand that it's just as simple to crochet a scarf with Sashay.

Before getting started, I'd recommend watching the following video. It does a great job of showing you how to cast on and knit with the Sashay yarn, which I found to be slightly confusing from the photos provided with the pattern. I learn best by watching someone else, so this was just what I needed.

I was really surprised at how quickly and easily I was able to turn out a scarf with this product. Even as a newbie knitter, I was able to complete a scarf in just over two hours!

Frilly Knit Scarf

As you can see, my sassy 6-year-old claimed this purple frilly knitted scarf as her own. Of course that means that her big sister is hounding me to knit her a scarf using the pink Sashay yarn. Now that I have the method down, it should take even less time, and I'm excited to try my hand at knitting with a traditional yarn soon too! I'm taking recommendations for easy patterns to start with -- maybe a washcloth?

I am so impressed! I would love to learn to knit. I tried to learn crochet but I couldn’t quite get it, I’m so impatient.
