Boteh Scarf: Crochet At Its Best

Boteh Scarf

Boteh Scarf:kpwerker

The high from finishing my ripple blanket last week coupled with several consecutive days of sunshine has put me on a project-finishing spree.

Behold, my finished Boteh Scarf [Ravelry]. In my continuing quest to champion crochet at its best, this design blows my mind. It's simple (s-i-m-p-l-e). It takes advantage of some of crochet's unique qualities — the ease of shaping, that you can stick your hook anywhere to make cool shapes. I memorized the pattern after the first motif, and I'm pretty dim when it comes to achieving such feats.

Ok. Enough gushing. Here are the deets:

Started: 4th January 2008
Finished: 22nd January 2008
Pattern: Boteh Scarf, by Kathy Merrick (Interweave Crochet Spring 2007)
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (unknown color; larger-than-normal skein)
Hook: 4mm
Modifications: I only had enough yarn to make 13 motifs and edge in single crochet instead of half double.

In the end, the scarf really isn't my style, and I'll be finding it a good home. I certainly see more of these in my crafty future.

I agree about this pattern, absolutely fabulous. I'm working on my 3rd! The first one is in Trekking, the second is Cherry Tree Hill, and now I'm using Jitterbug. Sigh. Love them!

Looking very good. I didn't like it in the magazine, but it's a fun scarf in bright colors, like yours.

Where can you get this pattern? I looked at the magazine online and there isn't a pattern just the list of what you need.

The pattern is in the actual Spring 2007 issue of Interweave Crochet magazine.

Check out Interweave Crochet and the Crochet Me book!

I was thinking could you join these together into an afghan. Will have to give it a try make two and see how it goes. Worst that could happen is I would have two scarves.

I bought and downloaded it at Interweave crochet. It was so easy to buy it online and then download it to my computer! I'm hoping to run out tomorrow and buy the yard!
