    The yarn I bought says to use size 6 and the pattern I found online says to use a size 6, also.

    My daughter used the yarn for the ruffled scarf but found a video on how to crochet it. She made one up in an hour.

    i watched the instrutions for the red heart and the instuctions for scarbella are a little different
    one skips every other hole and one leaves a 4 inch tail as the other starts at the beginning and knits
    guess i`ll give it a go and see how it turns out
    Thanks Gale

    I don't think the size of needles is critical as this project does not have a guage. You are basically knitting already established holes. I used size 9 when I made some for Christmas. I made 3 short scarves using 10 stitches instead of 6 for my little grandgirls & I made 3 long scarves using 6 stitches for my older granddaughter & my two daughters. They all loved them ! Each scarf took me about 3 hrs to knit.

    Right, the needle size doesn't matter on these. i prefer a larger needle like 11 so i can see the loops better. Also, if you have trouble with the yarn falling off the needles, try using a circular. I can put mine down for a few minutes and not worry about the loose stitches falling off.

    I don't think it matters. You don't put any tension by pulling on the yarn. I used a 6 my friend used an 8 and they both look the same.

    gram33-your mention of "sashay" made me look twice--I haven't heard that term in years & years since my gramma passed away!! She always said she was sashaying when I would call & ask her what she was doing---thanks for the very nice memory!!!

    When I made mine, I used a 9. Found some bamboo needles in 10 and switched to that size thinking it wouldn't make a difference. Well, the scarves I made with the 10's were a bit shorter than the ones made with the 9s. Not that it mattered, just an observation because I thought with predetermined holes it wouldn't make a difference.

    The needle size is very interchangeable. I have used anywhere from a 4 to a 10. The size of the loops will help determine size. I also have cast on only 5 stitches to make a very long skinny scarf. This is a fun scarf to knit and a huge hit! Made over a dozen different ones for xmas. Enjoy

    I use a 10 or 11 and use 7 or 8 stitches. I found some nice short needles( about 8 inches) at A.C. Moore that are nice to work with.

    I have made 2 on my knitting machine. One was a winter weight and the other was summer weight.

    I can't tell you all how many of these ruffled scarves I've made and given away to friends and co-workers. I think the knitted ones take longer to make (about 3 hours) but they are more fluffier. I have found that the wooden knitting needles with the plastic tubing connecting both needles is great to keep the stitches from slipping off so I can carry my unfinished scarves around and work on them during break times. They really are fun to do and the different colors/brands keeps me from getting bored.

    It makes little difference. I would opt for the one that is easiest to use.

    It doesn't really matter because the holes in the Sashay yarn are so large. The finished scarf is lacey, so needle size doesn't matter.

    I made 9 for gifts. I knitted them from the video since I don't know how to knit. They were easy. I did do one crochet since I know how, but it was a different brand of yarn. I liked the knitted ones best. I used a circular knee doe and found the wooden ones were easier to hang on to since I really don't knit. I could not get pictures to upload from my iPad. It looks like my little models did upload...they loved the scarfs.

    I crochet all of the ones I've made. I think it is easier & much faster. You can make them fluffier by adding more loops to your hook before pulling through. Go to the web site on the yarn & you can find instructions for doing it either knitting or crocheting.
