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?
