Inspired by Pinterest: Simple Crochet Ruffled Scarves

Join me for today's Inspired by Pinterest on My Craft Channel as I share how to make the trendy ruffled scarves with a simple crochet technique. I found this craft to be very therapeutic during my months of recovery following a double-mastectomy, when normal crafts we very difficult to do. If you like to keep your hands busy while watching television, or just like cute scarves then this episode is for you.

Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.

  1. Lori, I call these Modern Day Boa's. Feathers shed so much and really are not acceptable in today's society, but these scarfs are. LOVE THEM! Great job on the video.

    Here is an idea to try -- skip every 2nd loop and put 10 to 15 loops (total of 20 -30 loops used) on the hook and then pull through or loop over like you did in the video, this makes a much fuller scarf and I get one 6-8 ft scarf from each skein of yarn. I agree, very relaxing while watching TV

    For the fabric material - not the fabric you showed, but the fabric with the holes cut in the fabric, put 4-6 loops on the hook and then pull the next loop through. Again, this makes a really full scarf. Still takes only 1-2 hours (depending on how good the TV program is).

    I keep going until I get to the end of the yarn. That way, whenever I sell or give one away, I can adjust the length for that person.

    To end the scarf I pull the yarn through the last loop and then just tie the end in a knot and cut off the extra. If you want to be sure that it is not going to come apart, you could add some fabric glue or elmer's glue to the middle of the knot. The ruffle will hide the knot.

    I really like the metallic yarns (you can use more loops per ruffle with the metallic yarns. I have about 25 or 30 scarfs so I guess I better sell some or give them away.

    Oh, they now have a Sashay Mini which is a more narrow ruffle. Great for little girls or ladies that think the wide ruffle is just too much.

    1. Hi, I'm forever looking for new scarves, hats, etc. I'm just getting ready to start Radiation treatments as my Chemo has been done for quite some time now. I'm battling breast cancer and loved these when I saw them! Always looking for a way to look prettier and feel better. You mentioned possibly giving some away? Well if this is something you do decide you want to do then please let me know. My husband is I'll also and has been unable to work for almost 3 years now and we are always just trying to get by and any donation or help would be so much appreciated. Thank you,
      Jenifer
