Red Heart Boutique-Sashay Yarn is rated 3.5921 out of 5 by 228.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I bought this product to make patriotic scarves for my family because we are a proud military family. The yarn is wonderful, super easy to work with. I love the colors, they are vivid and while they do transition nicely, there is no running colors, perfect! I highly recommend this yarn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoyed working with this yarn! This yarn was extremely easy to work with although it was knotted in three separate places, which was annoying to the point of unnerving. I did the best I could with trying to work with it and I wound up keeping it for myself but did order additional skeins and had no problems with them. I love all the boutique yarns and I wish there were tutorials for correcting the knots or mended areas that are in the skeins. This same thing has happened with other colors and you may have a scarf half the size you intended. Hopefully they can come up with a way to fix them correctly before they are completely wound and tagged. Patriotic was the the one with the most problems but the other two scarfs worked up beautifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sashay I thought I'd purchased just about every color of this brand and type until my most recent visit to JoAnne's where I saw some new additions. Can't wait to do these up as well. I have a massive collection so far, and they make wonderful gifts at the ready in my closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OPERATOR ERROR I bought this yarn to crochet a scarf for myself, and the yarn was beautiful to look at, but the scarf was so bulky and stiff, I ended up unraveling the whole thing and plan to switch to a different yarn. For the right project it would be great, it has plenty of body and no doubt would be durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to Become Your Own Grandma My grandma was a knitter and sometimes she held one needle under her arm, the better to untangle certain yarns. When I first tackled ruffle scarves her technique came in handy. I think of her everytime I knit a ruffle scarf and I've knitted dozens with more to come. They're fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sashay Scarves I have made about 200 scarves in the last year. I do get frustrated when I find a skein has a flaw or a big knot, but I came up with a solution to some of these problems. I always unroll the yarn to check for flaws ahead of time...if I find one with a flaw about in the center... I make smaller scarves for young girls. Instead of casting on 6 stitches, I cast on 4....I can get two smaller scarves out of a skein of yarn....and discard the piece with the flaw....I have had so many compliments on the scarves I have made to sell...and I am still selling them even after Christmas...hope to see some new colors this year. Overall I love this yarn...it is so much softer than other brands.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Some Sashay Yarns Are Better than Others There are several styles of Sashay Boutique yarns. The earliest on was called "Boutique The first Sashay yarn I used was called "Boutique Sashay". It had a very thin silver thread woven through one edge--not bold. Since then, Red Heart has added Sashay Sparkle (heavy silver edge), Sashay Metallic, Sashay Sequin, etc. My review below covers all the styles. A little over a year ago, I crocheted my first ruffle scarf using Boutique Sashay yarn (had a very thin silver thread woven through one edge). The yarn was easy to work and made a scarf 6' 26" long. I made another one without problems. For the next scarf, I used Sashay SPARKLE (1/4" wide silver edge on one side). This yarn was also stable and easy to crochet. Again, the finished scarf was over 6 ft. long. I made at least three more using the SPARKLE yarn, without any flaws or problems. With both the Boutique Sashay and Sparkle yarns, there were absolutely NO flaws, holes, broken/ragged edges or weak crochet edge. This year, I bought my first 2 balls of Sashay METALLIC yarn (the style listed above). What a mess! The top edge that you crochet/knit was extremely weak. As I pulled the tenth (last) stitch through all the stitches on the hook, the last stitch unraveled to become ONE thin, very weak thread measuring 1-2 inches long! I unraveled the entire scarf and started again, being very careful. The same thing happened. Because I had to drive 70 miles RT to return/exchange the yarn, and had just had knee surgery, I decided to continue crocheting this yarn, hoping the finished scarf would look nice. After crocheting about 2.5 ft. of this first Metallic yarn scarf, I came upon a huge knot (two ends of same yarn tied together) with large holes on each side. I had to cut off the know and holes, losing about 1.5 ft. of yarn. Then I had to fold over each end, then overlap them 2 inches and crochet through all 4 layers. THIS IS NOT EASY to do. I continued to crochet on this scarf. After another 2-3 ft., I came across another big flaw: The end of one section of yarn had been overlapped with the end of another piece and all had been stitched heavily. I could not continue crocheting through the overlap (it was stiff and very visible), so AGAIN I had to cut away several inches and do the overlap thing again. SO ANNOYING and a WASTE of my TIME. The finished scarf was only 5 ft long and the crocheted edge was extremely weak. In spite of this bad experience with the Sashay Metallic yarn, I started another scarf with the second ball of Metallic yarn BIG mistake. The second ball was worse than the first--more flaws. This scarf was about 5 ft. long, too. Wanting to make more ruffle scarves, as requested by friends and family, I decided to try the newer Sashay SEQUIN yarn. The first scarf was easy. the crochet/knit edge was stable and easy to work. The finished scarf was beautiful and about 6.5 ft. long. I started the second Sashay SEQUIN scarf. Once again, after crocheting, I came to a messy knot with lots of large holes on each side. I had to cut off 26", overlap, etc. and continue. I unrolled and flattened a few feet of the yarn and didn't see any more flaws, so I continued to crochet. Guess what? Yes, I came upon another two feet of serious flaws: The yarn was full of large holes and the sequined edge was full of cuts, and full of folds that had been stitched over. The Sequin edge was ragged. I cut out another 2 ft., overlapped and continued. The finished scarf was barely 5 ft. long. Five feet is long enough to fold the scarf and wrap around your neck, but the tails are very short. Okay, I'm an idiot and a glutton for punishment for NOT unwinding the entire ball of each yarn and checking for flaws before beginning to crochet. Avoid Sashay METALLIC yarn. UNROLL & inspect ALL other Sashay yarns before starting a scarf. By the way, Red Heart said that the knots and overlaps are "normal"! Really?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun projects I also love this sashay yarn I do have a tip. I use an empty toliet paper roll to flaten out my yarn and wrap around the cardboard roll. If you have a small piece of rubber self liner, wrap this around the cardboard roll prior to wrapping yard around the cardboard roll. Happy Crocheting..
