  • 4 skeins Red Heart® Boutique Sashay Sequins™ yarn in Concord
  • Clipboard (to hold the yarn while knotting)



Scarf measures 6½” (16.5 cm) wide x 69” (175 cm) long.

  1. Cut 16 strands of yarn, each 4 yards long.

Row 1 of Knots

  1. Hold 4 strands together and make an overhand knot 6” from the ends. Make a loop and pull ends through the loop, Photo A and B.  Repeat for three more groups of 4 strands.

  2. Place the four knots in the clipboard in preparation for the next row of knots.

Make Butterfly Bobbins

  1. In order that strands do not get tangled, make a butterfly bobbin with each strand of yarn (16 bobbins). This may seem like a lot of winding, but it is necessary to prevent tangles of yarn.
  2. Starting near the knot, wrap yarn in a figure eight around fingers.

  3. When you have an end of about 18”, pinch center of wraps, remove from fingers, and wrap the loose end firmly around center of figure eight; pull end through the center wraps to hold. You will be able to pull more yarn from the bobbin as needed while doing your knotting.

  4. For row 2, hold two strands from first knot and two strands from second knot together; make an overhand knot about 2 inches down from first row of knots.
  5. Make two more knots in this row using adjacent strands from second and third knots; and then using strands from third and fourth knots. You will continue to use pairs of strands from adjacent knots throughout the scarf.  Note that the first two pairs of strands and the last two pairs of strands are not knotted in this row. There are 3 knots in this row.

  6. For row 3, knot pairs of strands together, starting with first two pairs and continuing across row. You will have 4 knots in this row.

  7. For row 4 to row 22, repeat Rows 2 and 3 for 22 rows. Even number rows will have 3 knots and odd number rows will have 4 knots. (If you end sooner, you will need to end with a 4 knot row, like row 3.)


  1. Trim fringe at each end.

Wow! This is something different. Not knitted or crocheted. It's about working the yarns to make this beautiful scarf. Thanks for the pattern and the diagram.
