Ruffle Scarf Crochet Pattern with Boutique Sassy Fabric from Red Heart

Disclosure: I received this yarn from Red Heart.

Have you seen the Boutique Sassy Fabric from Red Heart?  It's a long strip of fabric with evenly spaced holes that you can crochet or knit.  The 100% polyester fabric is sheer and has a pleasant feel -- my four year old called it "slippy" which is what she calls silk scarves.  It comes in quite a few patterns, everything from chevrons to skulls, but the yarn that I received from Red Heart to try out was this classic black and white houndstooth pattern:

Red Heart has a few patterns that use this yarn.  After looking through their selection I decided to stick with making a ruffle scarf.  After playing around with the fabric for a little while the following is what I did.
  • Chain 6.  I used a size K crochet hook.  The recommended size is a J, but I really wanted something a little looser.
  • Single crochet in second chain then until the end. (5 stitches) Chain one.
  • Single crochet across. (5) Chain one.
  • Repeat until you reach the desired length.

I used one hank in its entirety, which is about 30 yards of fabric.  Personally, I would have liked the scarf to be a little bit longer, but it is fine as is.  I think the length is just about perfect for my sweet little model, Catherine!  What do you think?

It did take just a few minutes to get the hang of working with the fabric, but once I caught on the project took about a leisurely hour.

Have you worked with any of the Boutique Sassy Fabric from Red Heart?  What did you make?  Did you enjoy working with it?

If you liked this post, I'd love to have you follow me!


  1. Catherine makes a wonderful model :-) I haven't played with it yet but wondered how well it worked. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I want to try the fabric yarn to make some ruffle scarves, but I haven't found it on sale yet.

    I love working with the sashay yarn though, and have made tons of those both crocheted and knitted, and I prefer the knitted look as I think it is more fluffy and the chain isn't as visible. When I do make them though, I do not crochet back across the foundation chain so the scarf is longer.

    But this one is absolutely gorgeous! And does fit your daughter perfectly.


  3. Hehe. Oops, I misread it! I thought you chained a long and then single crocheted across the foundation of the scarf.
    Your way is a great idea! I am pinning this to try later with some of the sashay yarn I have leftover.


  4. This is cute - and looks super easy!

  5. Super cute! Catherine might have a future in modeling :) Happy New Year.

  6. I do not ever recall seeing the houndstooth fabric yarn. i would not mind trying that design for myself. -craftyone

  7. My daughter loves it when I make these! Though I do have to say i do not crochet them I knit them I find it easier for me to do it that way. =D

  8. So cute!!! Thanks for sharing with Fiber Tuesday Link Party!
    I hope you join us again this week!
