Ready Set Ruffles
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- Red Heart® Boutique Sashay Team Spirit™: Burgundy/Gold
- Knitting needles: US9
- Sewing needle and matching sewing thread
- Tape measure
Gauge is not important for this project.
For longer scarf cast on 6 stitches; for a shorter scarf cast on 10 stitches.
Stretch one end of the Sashay open for several inches and lay it flat, placing the edge with the metallic thread along the bottom. Notice that the Sashay yarn is a mesh of holes. Work with the top of the mesh and leave the metallic edge loose to form the ruffle. Use the top railroad track of holes as if it is yarn.
Scarf measures 4” x 62” (6” X 38”)
Directions are for 62” scarf; changes for 38” long scarf are in parentheses.
Beginning at the top right edge, insert tip of a knitting needle from back to front starting 4” from end and using top row of holes (railroad tracks). Continue inserting needle 5 (9) more times skipping 1 hole between each stitch. You now have 6 (10) cast on stitches. Place this needle in left hand.
Pick up right hand needle and knit between the top two threads of the mesh (railroad tracks) going into every other hole.
Continue knitting these 6 (10) stitches on each row, turning work in the same direction at end of rows.
Put work down and open up the mesh while working. Stop knitting when there is 24” left for binding off.
Bind off as usual drawing the end of the Sashay through the last bound off stitch. Trim leaving a 4” end. To finish the ends, fold under the corner and tack to inside with sewing needle and thread.
