- Stitch markers (2)
- Sewing needle & thread
GAUGE: 5 sts = 4-1/2'. Gauge is not important to this project.
Scarf measures 4'x36'
Stretch one end of the Sashay open for several inches and lay it flat; place the edge with the sequins along the bottom. Notice that the Sashay yarn is a mesh of holes. You will be working with the top of the mesh (railroad track) and leaving the sequin edge loose to form the ruffle.
Hook a stitch marker under both top loops of the first sc in each row, moving the markers up each side of the scarf as it progresses.
Always turn the work in the same direction at the end of each row.
Beginning 6' from the raw edge, insert hook through the top of the mesh and pick up a loop. Chain 1, insert and close a stitch marker under both top loops of the ch st, marking the first st. Ch 5 going into every other hole in the mesh., turn. Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, marking the sc with a stitch pin. Sc in next 4 ch, removing the stitch marker at the end of the row. Ch 1, turn. Row 2: Sc in each sc across, marking 1st sc in row. Ch 1, turn. Repeat Row 2 to desired length.
At each end of the scarf, trim the yarn to 6' and tuck the loose end between the nearest two ruffle layers. Using sewing needle and matching thread, tack the end firmly in place.
