Hello everyone! Back in November I started seeing people all over the place wearing these beautiful swirly, knitted scarves and thought to myself “I need to find out how to make one”! I am NOT a knitter. I love handmade sweaters, scarves and hats, etc, but have always been busy doing other things to ever concern myself with knitting. Plus I’ve always been slightly intimidated by the whole process. Well, believe it or not, these scarves have peaked my interest, and I got busy learning how to knit (kind of, lol). There really isn’t that much real knitting involved but if you’re a beginner like me, these scarves are the perfect way to start.The beauty of these scarves is they are very forgiving. You don’t have to worry about tension when knitting them, and they only take about 3 hours to complete. The yarn also comes in different styles and colours, so there is lots to choose from. Here is a picture of one of the balls of Red Heart Sashay yarn. As you can see, it comes already woven, so all you have to do is stitch it together in rows to form a long chain. You can see what the scarf looks like on a person by the model in the picture – gorgeous!I have now made 7 of these! Why so many, you ask? Well, I have two kids in school, who each have two teachers. I knit each one of them a scarf and gave it to them with a box of home baked goodies for Christmas. I also knit one for myself, my mother-in-law and my daughter. I made this mini below for one of my daughter’s stuffed animals.If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to lately, now you know the answer, lol! I will be entering this into the Out of a Hat Challenge today, since the theme is winter, and what better way to celebrate winter than with a beautiful scarf. If you want to try to make your own Red Heart Sashay scarf, you can check out the video on how to make these here.
Hope you’re all ready for the holiday festivities coming up, if that’s your thing. If I don’t chat at you before Christmas, have a safe and happy holiday, and may you all receive an abundance of all the good things that come with it! Happy ho ho!
