    scarf yarn

    Do any of you have a cheap, safe source to buy ruffle or scarf yarn for making the ruffle scarves? Thank you.

    Our Joann's also has it. You could use a coupon or buy online when they have a yarn sale.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    joanns

    I did look at joanns and hobby lob. Ours didn't have it. But I did find it online at joanns. The prettier colors are on Ice.com. But it comes out of Turkey and I didn't know how safe it would be.

    Sashay Scarfs

    I bought mine at Wal-Mart and Michael's. 4.99 each. It is called Boutique Sashay, Red Heart brand. I also did not knit the scarf, I crochet it. So far I have made 13 scarfs. You can get the pattern to crochet at www.Premieryarns.com and on You Tube, just specify Crochet sashay scarf.

    I have made 6 so far. I got the yarn at Joanns. I believebthey are going to be 25% off this week. I have had to return 2 of the skeins because one had a lsrge joining knot in it and the other had a big flaw in the edging. I wrote to the company about the knot, but have not heard from them. I love making the scarves and plan on making more of them.

    JoAnn's keeps theirs at 10% - 25% off so you can't use your coupons, but Walmart honors JoAnn's coupons, so that really helps. Michaels had a great selection the last time I was there and you can use Michaels and JoAnn's coupons there.

    I just bought some today at Michael's in a lovely teal color. It is called Flaunt Ostentation by a compaany named Loops and Thread. It was on sale for $3.99 a skein and it takes two skeins to make a scarf. Regular price for it was $4.99. Hope this helps.

    thank you all for the replies. Found red heart sashay at Jo-anns. Solid colors were on sale and the others I used 40% coupon. My daughter bought one. Anyway, all said and done they averaged out to be about 3.33 ea. I was happy.

    Speaking of patterns, if you'd like to see how-to videos on making the Red Heart Sashay scarves, go to the Red Heart website, www.redheart.com. and you will find links to the video. Easy to follow, too!
