Smoky Swirls Sashay Scarf



  • Red Heart® Boutique™ Sashay™: 1 ball 1936 Waltz.
  • Knitting Needles: 5.5mm [US9]
  • Sewing needle and matching sewing thread


Scarf measures 4” x 62” (6” X 38”). Directions are for 62” scarf; changes for 38” long scarf are in parentheses.


  1. For longer scarf cast on 6 stitches; for a shorter scarf cast on 10 stitches.
  2. 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. You will be working with the top of the mesh and leaving the metallic edge loose to form the ruffle. You are using the top channel of holes as if it is yarn.
  3. Beginning at the top right edge, insert the tip of a knitting needle from back to front starting 4” from the end. Continue inserting needle 5 (9) more times. You now have 6 (10) cast on stitches.
  4. Place this needle in left hand.Continue knitting these 6 (10) stitches on each row, always turning your work in the same direction at the end of rows.
  5. Stop knitting when you have 1 yard left for binding off.
  6. Bind off loosely, drawing the end of the Sashay through the last bound off stitch. Trim leaving a 4” end.
  7. To finish the ends, fold under the corner and tack to inside with sewing needle and thread.

I have on and I don't like how it moves around. So maybe I will take and take certain part to certain areas. Other wise I really like it.

Such an adorable scarf. It looks so chic and modern. I love the ruffles. Have you tried using the glitter thread to make it more festive for the holidays? I bet this would work well with the hombre yarns too. I remember the red, green, and white sparkly yarn that we used when I was a kid. It would work great for this project as well I bet.
