Knitting for Beginners: Ruffle Scarf with Sashay Yarn
Do you know how to knit? I would love to say that I am a good knitter as knitting is something that I’ve always wanted to learn to do. I’ve tried to knit in the past but never successfully finished a project. So when
Walmart challenged me, as a part of the Walmart Moms, to try out Sashay Yarn that they carry in their stores, I knew now was my chance to try my hand at knitting again.
Thankfully I was sent the supplies that I needed to complete this challenge, otherwise I would have been completely lost from the start. One noticeable difference with Sashay Yarn is that is not like typical yarn. It has a woven texture to it to create the ruffles and you knit it a bit differently than you normally would with regular yarn.
Being as this is the first knitting project I was determined to finish and that I’m a complete beginner, I did a search on YouTube for some tutorials.
As a visual learner, the video tutorials really helped me figure out how to knit with Sashay Yarn. In the photo below you can see how my knitted ruffle scarf turned out. I don’t think I did too bad, I mean it does look like a scarf afterall. Its not perfect by any means, I’m sure I missed some loops and I know I dropped some stitches a couple of times but I’m happy with the way it turned out.
Is knitting with Sashay Yarn hard? As a beginner I didn’t find it too difficult. Like most DIY projects there are steps that can be a bit of a challenge. The challenge for me was ending the scarf so that it wouldn’t unravel after I finished my project.
I think the time it took me to complete the scarf was probably around 5 hours or so. Of course, I was knitting pretty slowly since I’m just learning. Now that I finally have a completed knitting project, I’m looking forward to trying more knitting projects and finding out other ways to use Sashay Yarn.
Have you ever knit something with Sasha Yarn?
