New and Improved Sashay Scarf Pattern
I am a crocheter, I can knit but I really don’t like to but I love the Sashay ruffle scarfs and recently had an order for 12 of them from one of the stores I sell at. I used the method where you insert your hook every other stitch for 10-12 stitches and then pull the last stitch through all the rest, but after crocheting a few of them I realized that I really didn’t like the way they were coming out. They weren’t full enough and they had a “flat” side and you could see the stitches.
I researched other ways to crochet the scarfs and wasn’t happy with that method either (3sc, ch2 or other variations of this method) they didn’t twist and curl the way I wanted them to.
So this is what I came up with, I’ve had the pattern tested and the testers agreed, this method works so much better. The scarfs are full and fluffy and they don’t have any flat parts you can also barely see (if you can see them at all) any stitches.
I hope you enjoy using my new method and sashay scarf pattern. If you have any questions please send me a comment, I’d love to see your finished products as well.

Here are the results from Jessie At Home
one skein of Sashay Ruffle yarn in color of choice
5.5 mm hook
Fix each ruffle in between and after stitch and make sure that the stitches are as close as possible where it says in very next space as this is what locks the ruffle in place so that you can’t see the stitches.
Unfurl about 2 feet of yarn, or you can take the time to unwind the entire skein and wind it on to a toilet paper roll. I personally thing this makes the process so much easier and quicker. I also put the toilet paper roll with the yarn on my paper towel dispenser which makes it even easier to work up.
Working on second row down (not top set of loops but row below) Insert hook in third space. Insert hook into every other space 7 more times for a total of 8 loops on the hook.
Yarn over in the very next space (closest possible to your hook) and pull through 4 (or half) of the loops on your hook. Yarn over again in the very next (closest possible to your hook) space and pull through the remaining loops on your hook. That completes the ruffle… now to lock that ruffle in place you are going to yarn over again, into the very next space and sl st that loop through the loop on the hook. This will complete the first ruffle.
Repeat until you reach the end of the skein. To end, just sl st through and finish off the way you would with any yarn and tie the end in a knot. You can also tie the ends and then tack and sew down each end for added security.
