Boot toppers and scarves are two simple projects to crochet with Sashay yarn. Crocheters should choose simple patterns that allow the color and texture of this ruffle yarn to take the forefront.
A ruffle scarf is a common first project for this type of yarn. When a piece of Sashay is stretched width-wise, it becomes clear that the yarn is actually a long strip of netted fabric with large holes. A ruffle is created by gathering the yarn through these holes with a crochet hook. Crafters can follow the pattern as written for a lacy alternative to a feather boa, or crochet a wider first row to make a dramatic wrap.
Boot toppers are meant to be worn at the top of boots, giving the appearance of a knee-high sock without the extra bulk. They add a splash of color to an outfit and are a handy way to create a layered look. This crochet project consists of a short foundation chain and basic single crochet stitches. The project requires no shaping, making it easy for beginners. To adjust the size to fit any leg, the crocheter simply adds more chain stitches to the first row, enough to fit around the leg of the intended recipient.
