Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

There are many tutorials on youtube (just type red heart sashay in the search box) using this type of yarn. Easy to follow. I made one & was so quick to finish & beautiful! Have not attempted the crochet method yet, looked complicated! lol but this knitted method is so easy even non-knitters can prob do it!

Has anyone tried to crochet this using the yarn pictured? i bought a skein of it already, it is so beautiful.. The link provided below for the crochet potato chip pattern is done starting from scratch, not starting with this yarn.

it lookes so nice but do you have any video to show ,and the abbreviations.

I would like to know if this has crocket patterns.It's beautiful but I don't knit. Thanks quiltingpanda

@quiltingpanda 8910368, Here is a crochet pattern from our sister site, AllFreeCrochet, for a very similar scarf: http://www.allfreecrochet.com/Scarves/Wavy-Potato-Chip-Scarf --editors of FaveCrafts

I can't seem to envision the instructions with this yarn. Could you provide a couple of pictures of the knitting process.
