I can't figure out how to pearl stitch with the sashay yarn. Can you help me please, I so want to make this scarf.

Have made five of these scarves, but am having trouble finding a variety of colors in the Sashay yarn. Even Red Heart's web site is sold out of most of the colors. It is so frustrating.

Scarf name suggestion: Catepillar to butterfly. submitted by woogeecoocoo

Name suggestion for the "no name scarf", Bing cherries, submitted by Peachie

How about "Ripples of Ruffles Scarf"?

"It is what it is!"

How about the Ruffle Scuffuffle Scarf? It's a great name for this creation.

How aout Rainbow Boa -

"Playful Femininity"

I would name it Black Raspberry Swirl. It's a real pretty scarf for the spring or fall.

I think this beautiful scarf should be called smashing sache because it's simply smashing. :)

I just made this scarf, with the exact yarn and color. I think it should be called the Sparkling Pansy Swirl Scarf. With spring coming, it has all the right colors, right down to the leaves.

Sashay Celebration! It's an explosion of beauty.

This beautiful scarf should be called "Paris in the Springtime"

Soft and sassy

I think It should be called the Berry Twirly Scarf

I think it should be called raspberry leaf

Coral Reef boa

How about 'The Whimsy Scarf'

Love it: Night on the town

How about "The party girl Flounce scarf"

It's beautiful 'Multi Ruffle Delight' is what I would call it.

It's like a boa and it has rich color.....Mardi Gras Marvelolus

ooh la la!

Soft Sashay Ruffles. I have made a lot of these for fists and everyone lives them. Easy to do, but the sashay yarn takes some hunting. There are other brands available that are similar but Sashay is the best priced for the quality.

I say "sashay away"!

I would name this gorgeous scarf "berrylucious".

How about " Frollicing Sashay" scarf.

In honor of the time of year-how about the Oscar Winning Scarf?

Fluffle Ruffles

Classy Boa ( good name for TwisN'Curl scarf) 7856791 2-25-12

Rhoda how about "cascading embers"

sassy lady scarf

Ruffled Sashay

wavy delight

Sweet Pea Belle


Cherry 5284588 Aurora Nights

Ruffled Endulgence

If I had dreamt up this pattern, I would call it the Fuchsia Ruche-a!

Graceful Waves

La Contessa seems appropriate for the scarf name.

"fairy ruffles", they are so soft and light, a nice spring and fall scarf.

My suggestion for the scarf name is: Bouncy Flounces.

Merlot Ruffles - I've made over 40 of these....sell great at craft shows.

I like "Colour me ruffled" I have made about niine of these so far. Everyone loves them

How about ' Night in Paris'. It just has a romantic flair and great coloring that's what came to my mind.

The scarf should be named "the perfect scarf". I cannot tell you how many women I know are knitting it and it is an easy pattern that looks completely different depending on the yarn used.

Flurries of Love

Fiesta Fanfare Boa
