|This is the the finished scarf, that I mentioned in my last post that I|
was working on. This one is not Sashay, it is Premier Yarns Starbella.
It is similar to Sashay, except the loops of the netting are bigger, but
it is used in the same way, by knitting or crocheting the loops across
the top of the material. I spent another 30 minutes, working the rest of
the ball, and finished this scarf. It has a nice fun look, and I love the
bright colors that Starbella has to offer.
After Making the scarves, I decided to do some experimenting. I love to play with texture and stitches, some of my best project ideas have come from doing just that! These are some of the other things I came up with using this self ruffling yarn.
|Red Heart had instructions for making a bloom by first crocheting a base and then making a chain of Sashay and sewing it in a spiral pattern onto the base. This is the what my bloom looks like, front and back following their instruction. It was pretty quick to make, nice and full and had a base which makes it easy to attach to a garment or pin. |

I could see this yarn being used in other craft projects besides knitting and crochet. I thought it might be ideal to use to add ruffle trim to sewing projects and paper craft projects such as card making. I ran out of time before my demo to make up any sewing samples, but I did manage to whip together this little butterfly that I thought would make a cute card.
