Boteh Scarf

Boteh Scarf:kpwerker

I lied a little yesterday when I updated my last post to say I'd fixed the RSS feed problem I'd inadvertently created. I didn't mean to lie. So.

Now I'm pretty sure the feed is fixed, and I'm also pretty sure I at least band-aided the problem that caused some visitors to the site to receive that internet database equivalent of the blue screen of death, the fatal error. The band-aid might make the site run a bit more slowly for some; I thank you for your patience. When I'm back from TNNA (must pack!), I'll see what more I can do.

To distract you from this boring techspeak, I bring you my newly-begun Boteh Scarf. This yarn was sitting on my desk for months before I simply had to start a Boteh with it last week. It's from my first issue working on the magazine, and I've heard innumerable crocheters sing its praises, but man, I cannot stress enough how fun this pattern is. I think it's the first crochet scarf pattern I've ever followed. I'll have it on the plane with me tomorrow. Yum yum.

Hi Kim!
Your Boteh scarf is beautiful! If you don't mind my asking, how many skeins of the koigu did you use? I would love to make one as well.

Thanks! The hank of yarn I got was larger than usual, so I'd recommend using two.

Check out Interweave Crochet and the Crochet Me book!

Is there a tutorial for the Boteh scarf.  I'm having trouble understanding the ends of each row.

I have also started the Boteh Scarf. I am not sure about the placement of one stitch in the pattern, which is after row 29. The written instructions say "Hdc in next st, then turn and work 1 hdc in st just worked," but the diagram shows this

last hdc on the side of the stitch just worked.

Does this last hdc go in the side of the last stitch worked on row 29, or do I turn the work and do the last hdc on the WS of the last stitch?

Avez vous le diagramme de cette écharpe ? Est il possible de le recevoir ? Bien à vous. Amitiés. Christine
