  2. Thank you very much! I recently bought a scarf like this for $20 at a farmers' market. I've been wanting to learn how to make them for gifts! What size crochet hook do you recommend?

    1. Hey! I use a "J" hook for this pattern. Let me know if you get to make one!

    2. Hi! I did crochet one in shades of aqua...it's beautiful! Your directions were great! When I went back to buy more yarn, I started talking to other women who were also looking for yarn to make the scarves. They were all knitting them, so I decided to knit one. It took me twice as long to knit. Nobody could tell me the difference between knitting and crocheting them...they look nearly the same. I looked online for the answer. Someone posted that the crocheted ones sometimes twist while wearing them and the crocheted stitches may show while the knitted stitches stay in the middle of the scarf. I haven't worn my crocheted one, yet, so idk if that's true. Do you? Thanks, again!

    3. I personally like the knitted ones much better. I have tried to knit them--but it takes a lot longer (for me at least, because I am knitting challenged). The knitted ruffles sort of "stack" on one another and hide the stitches. If you google "knitted sashay scarf" and then look at the images you can see some examples. ... but like I said, I can't knit them! LOL!

  4. Thanks for the instructions. So easy. I didnt think this would be that easy. Also, has anyone ever told you that you kind of look like the chick named Bernadette on the Big Bang Theory TV show?

  5. Thank you so much for this video. I was intimidated until I saw your tutorial. I had a bit of problem with it unraveling occasionally but other than that I breezed through it in about 2.5 hours. I can you a shout out on my blog. (And I agree with Allie-you do resemble Bernadette and you're a genius just like her too.) http://ouradvocate.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/2-free-christian-fiction-ebooks-and-a-scarf-pattern/

  6. Does 1 skein of sashey yarn make 1 scarf? and how many inches long is the end results?

  7. I know if you use Red Heart, 1 ball/skein will make 1 scarf. Red Heart has written instructions on the back of their label, the say if you use six stitches like their instructions say then you should get a 62" scarf (I've never actually measured any of the scarves that I've made).

  8. Thank you Rachel for the tutorial. That looked so much quicker then knitting! I read that it takes like 3 hours to knit, I have never knitted anything else before so it took me a lot longer, I did mine in sessions so I honestly didn't keep track of how long it actually took me. I have a lot of different colors that I bought before Christmas and most of them are still in a bag by my chair because it was taking me too long. Thank you so much!
