1An exact gauge is not critical for this project. Finished scarf measures approximately 4 inch wide x 62 (38) inch long. Pattern is written for larger size with changes for smaller size in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. Save time, check your gauge. If the needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge. You may want to watch the video provided near the top of the page for assistance in knitting with this yarn. Notes: For longer scarf cast on 6 stitches; for a shorter scarf cast on 10 stitches. Stretch one end of the Sashay open for several inches and lay it flat, placing the edge with the metallic thread along the bottom. Notice that the Sashay yarn is a mesh of holes. You will be working with the top of the mesh and leaving the metallic edge loose to form the ruffle. You are using the top railroad track of holes as if it is yarn.
2Beginning at the top right edge, insert tip of a knitting needle from back to front starting 4 inch from end and using top row of holes (railroad tracks). Continue inserting needle 5 (9) more times skipping 1 hole between each stitch. You now have 6 (10) cast on stitches. Place this needle in left hand.
3Pick up right hand needle and knit between the top two threads of the mesh (railroad tracks) going into every other hole.
4Continue knitting these 6 (10) stitches on each row, turning your work in the same direction at end of rows.
5Put your work down and open up the mesh as you go. Stop knitting when you have 36 inch left for binding off.
6Finishing: Bind off loosely, drawing the end of the yarn through the last bound off stitch. Trim leaving a 4 inch end. To finish the ends, fold under the corner and tack to inside with sewing needle and thread.
