Boutique Sassy Fabric Tutorial:

We had such a blessing for the crafters in our city! A lady in our small community decided to open a craft store downtown where crafters could display and sell their handiworks on consignment. The store is scheduled to open on May 1 and she is wanting the opening to emphasize gifts for Mother Day. Which brings me a slight change in plans for my crocheting projects. I will be putting aside the one project I didn’t finish this month, my shawl. Instead I plan on crocheting some projects to place in this new store, an excitingly, new adventure that has crossed my path.

I started with the Sassy Fabric I received from Red Heart. I copied the pattern from RED HEART, but I added some pictures to help clarify. The hank that was sent to me in my package from Red Heart Yarns was the Red Dot fabric, and it made a really pretty scarf. This would be for someone who wants to crochet something quick and a little different from what they usually work with.

To start with you will need RED HEART Boutique Sassy Fabric: 1 hank (your choice of which one) and
a crochet Hook: 5.5mm [US I-9]. You will also need a small amount of matching sewing thread. The best part about this pattern is that GAUGE is not important.

Boutique Sassy Fabric Scarf Tutorial:

SIZE: Scarf measures 52” long.

NOTE
1. Before starting, slide ball band to one end of hank. Remove cardboard from center of hank. Begin your scarf with inside end of Sassy Fabric and continue pulling from inside as you crochet.

2. Note that fabric has holes running along one side. You will be crocheting into each hole. (pictured above)

Step 1: Insert hook through 1st hole from back to front; repeat for 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes. You now have 4 holes on the hook.  (pictured above)

Step 2: Pinching together all four holes on the hook with left forefinger and thumb,(pictured above)

Step 3:  insert hook from front to back into 5th hole and pull through all holes on hook. (pictured above)

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 with each group of 5 holes.

Note: If you put your work down, be sure to put a stitch holder or safety pin on the working stitch. This holder needs to be larger than the hole so that your work will not fall apart.

Continue until scarf is desired length; cut leaving 3” (7.6 cm) end. Pull end through last stitch and pull tight. Trim beginning and ending fabric strip points so that they blend in with the ruffles. With sewing needle and thread, secure last stitch so scarf will not unravel.

Shake out your scarf so that ruffles spiral.

The scarf was well liked by my friends when I showed it to them. It is a project you can make by investing around an hour of your time. Making it great to have around for any last minute gifts. If you make one for yourself or someone else, keep in mind that it should be hand washed in cold and dried laying flat. Machine washing is NOT recommended.

I could see myself crocheting another one of these scarves, but this would not be one of my favorite things to make. This is a good project for someone who only knows the single crochet, and would like to make something. it is also a nice accessory to add to woman’s wardrobe. I think I prefer a yarn experience rather than using fabric for my personal preferences.

Thank you RED HEART for sending me the Boutique Sassy Fabric and enabling me to travel on this new journey.

Have you ever made a Sassy Fabric Scarf? Would love to hear what you thought.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Tell me why my scarf looks like it not spiral it won’t stay together can y help me

  4. If it is not staying together at the end, take some sewing thread and a needle and fold over the last tail and sew across it to finish it off. The spiral comes by how many holes you decide to go through. The more you go through the more of spiral you will get. I went through back and forth through five. I hope this helps.

    It seems to stretch and lose its fluff. Is there a way to help it stay together better?

  6. Sometimes if you use a smaller hook, it will make a tighter stitch and make it a little fluffier and harder to loosen up.
