Sorry, but Im not able to see how you do the purl stitch, as your hand is hiding what you do in the video! I really would like to be able to see what your doing. And then its not clear how many loops to skip before taking a loop to knit it. Please help!

you failed to mention that you do not use every opening-you need to skip a hole-put the knitting needled in every other opening.


I have also heard of a pattern where you cast on 9 stitches and take off the first 8 stitches using a crochet hook.You are left with one stitch right at the hook. I think I used a size 4 hook. I'm not a knitter or a crochet-er. I can make the other scarves. I know that much about knitting that Ican follow that pattern but this way is faster and easier. Trust someone to come up with a cheater way. Huh? It looks the same.


Love the Sashay yarn. Have done both crochet and knit scarves, but something occurred to me. The yarn itself is crocheted, so there is a front and a back. When knitting the scarf, how should I start, on the front side or the back side to be correct in going around and around with the right side showing and not the back?


I've been making a looser scarf: tie a knot in the beginning and using a crochet hook, slip stitch in the first opening, skip two openings, and slip stitch in the next one. Continue to the end; then tie a knot at the end. 6 1/2 yards makes this scarf; you can get 4 scarf out of a skein. This is very thin and you can wrap around neck w/long tails in front and back. You can also double this around the back of neck & pull through look in the front to keep your neck warm.


I tried using straight needles and found it awkward and kept dropping stitches. I then tried circular needles and found it much easier. You might want to try this!

I, too, would like to crochet one of these scarves. Someone said instructions are available, but I haven't found any. Please help!

I have made these for craft shows and for fund raisers for my grandson's school. I knit mine, although I know there is a crochet pattern for them, I cast on 8 stitches and knit each row, however I do not knot them at the end, I pass the last stitch through as to cast off and then spread the remaining yarn back and tie it off with a matching piece of yarn or sewing thread, then go back and do the same to the cast on edge to give it a smooth edge. there are several other types of yarn like Sashay, Starbella has several . You can get different colors this way.

I've made 5 of these sashay scarves for Christmas presents. I knitted them. 1st one with 6 stitches, which gives a long narrow scarf, the 10 stitches-makes a wide short scarf. Another I did with 8 stitches & is the width I like best, but was still a bit shorter than I wanted. Last one I did 8, but put on part of a 2nd skein til it was the length I wanted/
