Ruffled Scarf

A new fashion trend right now is ruffled scarves. They are frilly, fun, feminine and surprisingly easy to make. They can be knit or crocheted. When I saw Red Heart's Boutique Sashay yarn on a recent trip to JoAnn's I had to give it a try.

You only need one ball of yarn to make a ruffled scarf. Red Heart includes knit instructions on the label. Of course, crafting rebel that I am, I wanted to crochet instead of knit, so I developed my own pattern. My design is about 50 inches long and filled with plenty of springy color.


  • 1 ball of Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn in Mambo or color of your choice
  • size E crochet hook
  • needle
  • thread


When it's in a skein, this looks like really chunky yarn, but it's not.


All you have to do is open up one end of the yarn to see that it is more like a mesh. The secret to working with this yarn is to crochet with only the top two strands of the mesh. The middle section of mesh and the metallic edge will make up the ruffle.

Begin by inserting your crochet hook, front to back, about 4 inches from the end.

Now insert the hook, front to back, through the next space in the mesh and pull through.

If you were using regular yarn this is like tying that first loop in your yarn and sliding it over your crochet hook when you begin a project.

Using the top two strands of the mesh, ch 5.

Turn your work clockwise now and throughout the entire project so your ruffle wraps in the same direction.

Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next ch, ch 3, turn.


Your work should look something like this.

Row 2: dc in next dc twice, ch 3, turn.

Repeat row 2 until twelve inches of yarn remain.

Continue to open up the mesh as you work.

Remember, only crochet with the top two strands of the mesh and always turn your work clockwise.

Last Row: dc in next dc, twice, gently pull entire width of mesh through the last loop.

To finish, fold the end of the yarn over.

Then fold it over again.

Use a needle and thread to tack the end of the yarn to the inside of the scarf.

Finish the other end of the scarf in the same manner.

Enjoy adding a little spring time color and fanciful frills to your wardrobe.
