Since learning how to crochet I have always avoided specialty yarns. I’m not sure if it is intimidating to me or if it is because of the crazy amount of Sashay scarves I’ve seen during the last year.
This morning I found myself staring at Red Heart’s Sashay, Lace, and Fabric Boutique yarns. While the first thought that went through my mind was “I am NOT making a scarf” it quickly turned into “I could do edging on a blanket. Make a diaper cover. Christmas bows. Leg warmers….. BOOT CUFFS!”
So here you go, Toddler Sassy Fabric Boot Cuffs! You could easily change the size by starting with more of fewer FSC. You can also use your favorite boot cuff pattern and follow my stitch directions for the last row. Yes, ONE row of Red Heart Sassy Fabric makes a beautiful fluffy frill that almost any little girl will love. This beautiful yarn works up so soft and light weight!
Round 1: FSC 22. Join to first FSC.
Round 2-4: CH 1, HDC into same stitch and each sticth around. Join to first HDC (22)
Now the fun part!
Open the Red Heart Boutique – Sassy Fabric – Go ahead and unroll a few feet of the fabric.
How to crochet the -Sassy Frill HDC-
With your hook still attached to the crochet piece, insert your hook through the first hole of the fabric. Turn the hook back to the front of the fabric, and insert the hook into the next hole. Do this 2 more times.
You should have 1 strand of yarn, and your hook through 4 holes.
Making sure the fabric is all in front of the crochet piece. Wrap your RHSS yarn around your hook and continue to HDC into the first stitch. When you are pulling your yarn through for the HDC, you will be pulling it through the Fabric holes on the hook as well.
Continue the -Sassy Frill HDC- stitch the entire way around. (22)
With just the RHSS yarn, slip stitch into the starting stitch of this row. Cut the fabric. Finish off your yarn and weave in both of the yarn ends.
*You may want to tug on the frill the entire way around if any of it is sticking through the back side of the stitches.
Repeat for second boot cuff.
