Crochet a Doll Scarf in Less than 15-Minutes (No Experience Necessary!)10:41 PM
I used to crochet a little when I was a girl (very young - like 8, maybe?) I had never knitted, and the thought of crafting has always terrified me a little. When Walmart gave me the opportunity to work with some Sashay Yarn from Red Heart, I agreed, but was clueless where to begin. The instructions that came with the yarn was written for someone who had some experience, so I took my search to YouTube.
I came across a few fabulous videos, but one in particular showed me a very relaxed interpretation of crocheting that I could use to create a scarf with the yarn. I initially made a full-sized scarf for me, but then I realized I could make 3 doll scarves with one ball of the yarn and about one hour of time.
The yarn is like no other I have seen. It is really like a fabric; it's lacy and webbed and very pretty!
Here are the video instructions I used to make my doll scarf (and my full-sized one, too.)
This yarn takes some getting used to; you really need to unroll and stretch it as you go. It is beautiful when finished, however, and I recommend trying it -- even if you've never crocheted before!
The yarn, which is an affordable $4.67 a ball, can be purchased at Walmart.com or in stores. It comes in 11 colors!
