Red Heart Sashay Crochet Ruffle Scarf

Crochet Ruffle Scarf

My first attempt at a crochet ruffle scarf a little while back was with some Patons Pirouette Yarn. I never thought I’d work with this yarn but once I tried it, it wasn’t so bad. I have some gifts to make and thought a few of these ruffle scarfs would be nice and this time I’m trying out the Red Heart Sashay yarn with the same technique I used for the other scarf I made.

I get told their are different ways, supposedly easier ways but this is the way I like to work them up, I have not found another way that works up as nice as this approach. Most other methods all have a seam/edging that I don’t like.

US J10/6mm

Red Heart Boutique Sashay 1 ball

4 sts = 42″
5 sts = 36″


**I start working in the 6th and 5th working spaces, first 2 ch’s are worked through 2 layers of yarn.**

Ch 5,

Rnd 1: sc in each ch across, turn (5 sc)

Rnd 2+: rep rnd 1 until the end of your ball.

To finish off I used a heavy duty thread and weaved it through the cut edge of the yarn and tied it off in a few knots to the last sc, trim off thread.

The original video I watched on how to crochet with this type of yarn was hard to watch because it was jumpy and out of focus. I figured out the basics and really didn’t have any problems learning how to work with this yarn but it seems as though others had a hard time because the camera didn’t follow the work so I have made my own video to try to help you along.

      Hi Debi. This pattern is what I have been trying to accomplish for so long. I have made several sashay scarves but they seem to have a “good” side and a “bad” side. I would take a sewing needle and try to sew some of the ruffles together to hide the bad side. But, that takes forever. Thank you for the pattern. It’s beautiful.

  1. Barb S says

    I am wondering if your method of crocheting ruffled scarf makes a “thicker” or “fuller” scarf. I have a scarf I purchased, and I have tried to crochet one myself, but the videos I watched I am not getting the same results. My scarf I am crocheting is not as full, and I can see there are extra stitches on the one I purchased. The other videos show a quick and easy way, but I am not getting same results.

    • DearestDebi says

      Having a fluffier fuller scarf is the reason I crochet them the way I do. Other’s I’ve seen are not as full or they have a seam in them. Using 4 sc wide I find is perfect for just one ball, you get fullness and fluffiness. If you want them even ticker you could go up to 6 sc wide but you would probably need 2 balls of sashay.

    • DearestDebi says

      That might work? I’ve heard it you watch it in a mirror that it can help for lefties, not to sure about that though.

  2. Sara says

    Thank u soo much. Your pattern for the ruffle scarf was the only one that made sense and worked out well. Your tip with the markers helped tremendously. I no longer need them but it was a great idea and tip.

  3. Amy says

    I made this scarf, but did 5 single crochets & then the scarf wasn’t long enough. Did you use 4 or 5? To make this longer, I’d have to use another skein….how would you join yarn to this? Tie it?

    • DearestDebi says

      I usually work 4 sts with one ball which works out to 42″ if you want a longer scarf try working 3 sts. TO finish off I use a needle and thread to weave through the last stitch and the unfinished tail and tie it in a few knots.

  4. Frances says

    I love this pattern, but I don’t feel like I’m doing 4 crochet stitches on each row. I’m supposed to turn my work, right. I’m so bummed……I love this scarf! Thank you.

  5. Paula V says

    I don’t know if anyone else has had this experience but, I found when I ironed the yarn it was easier to work with for both crocheting and knitting.

    • DearestDebi says

      Oh never thought of that!! I’ve considered rewinding it on a spool but haven’t tried it yet. I’m assuming you use a very low heat when ironing?

    I am having trouble copying this pattern can someone help? I tried to use clean print but all I get is the advertisement & subscribers comments.thank you

  7. says

    Your video I*s great! thanks for sharing this. I have done 3 scarves with this type yarn, but did a simpler style, just chaining the whole length. I will try the way you shared. It is beautiful!

  8. Laurie says

    I have made 7 scarves so far and have found that working the 4 stiches Plus 1 sc turning chain at each end every time really makes a huge difference. You will get that fullness and symetry with NO seams showing. Another thing I do is in the beginning I fold over 2 or 3 holes so it will be double for first few stitches. I sc 5 then fold that in half. The 5th stitch is your turning chain for this row, the sc 2 st into the

  9. Laurie says

    I fold over 3 holes for beginning to hide ends. Then I do 5 sc in 1st row, the 5th being the turn st. fold over so now have just 2 st to work thru but double thickness. Do 2 sc in each st (you will end up with 4 sc) now do 1 sc for the turn. always skip that turn st then do your 1 sc in each of the 4 don’t forget your turning ch at end of every row plus you have to flip you scarf as you work it. At the end leave 4 holes an pull them thru to create the fold over like beginning. You can end it with knot as you would in regular crochet. Then knot will not show and no need for needle and thread. trim any ends that are to long and you are done! This will give you a fluffy, full, symetrical scarf. If you pull scarf end to end will get slightly skinnier scarf, but go whole length of scarf and pull ruffles scarf will be very full. keep in mind that skinnier is longer and fluffed big is slightly shorter. All this in just one scarf! Hope it wasn’t to confusing!

  10. Lee Anmn says

    I started and did 5 stitches.. Question is, when you grab the “thread” do you skip a loop for both times you grab thread for sc? Hope that makes sense. It’s coming out possibly too thick but trying it by grabbing each loop of thread is harder to see stitch.

  11. says

    I would like to have a printable copy for crocheting the ruffle scarf, but only found your video. I am doing this for a friend so I can show them how to crochet the scarf. She plans on making 4 scarfs for family.

  12. Melissa Nemeth says

    I am using a different yarn, the Loops & Threads Florence yarn (the one with Fabric instead of mesh). I have run out of yarn with the ball I was using (I think becuase I was doing 5 sc). My question is how do you add another ball of yarn to your work so the scarf is longer? Any tips would be great!
