Boteh scarf complete!

I’ve finished it – the Boteh Scarf, from Interweave Crochet.

I used Bamboozle yarn from Lincraft, which is a bamboo and cotton blend.  Once I got used to using it instead of wool, I rather enjoyed it.  There are fifteen motifs in this scarf rather than the sixteen in the pattern – I’m a short person!

It has rather nice drape, and has come up well after blocking (which I do with a steam iron – which is not at all what any of the books say to do).  I’m planning on doing a couple more as Christmas gifts.  If you make this scarf, remember to check the online errata, as there is an error in the pattern.

I was excited to receive this pattern in the mail today – I won it from Ballarat Patchwork via their blog Scrap Bag.

It was very exciting to win something – especially a bag pattern, and it’s my first by Amy Butler.  It seems quite unusual though – a bag with a side zipper?  Anyway, I’ll give it a go!

  1. Congratulations on finishing the scarf it’s stunning! The Tag Blanket is such a good idea. I had an idea for a friend’s grandson about knitting a blanket with different rainbow coloured squares within a white framework but varying the stitch so it creates different textures. I’ve not made it yet I’d better hurry up as he’s fast growing. Can you do a similar thing with crochet? I keep meaning to re-look-up what doubles are. LOL I seriously need to clone myself to get these ideas made.

  2. Gorgeous scarf! I love the way it drapes.

    Congrats on the Amy Butler pattern win! That bag looks like a fun design to make.

    If you’re interested, my friends and I are having a giveaway this week on our blog. Enter to win chances at yarn, fabric, chocolate and other goodies. We’re celebrating the autumn equinox in our part of the world and thought a giveaway would be a great way to share the fun.

  3. Wow, that scarf is beautiful. I can crochet but haven’t done so in ages, having been addicted to knitting. Thanks for sending people over to my blog. I’ll be coming back to read yours too.

  4. I’ve made this scarf too – wasn’t it fun? I absolutely love your version in the Bamboozle. How did you find it to crochet in a smaller hook? I’m using it at the moment for a lacework pattern in a larger hook and find it splits dreadfully.

    I’ve been rather enjoying your blog with your crochet and sewing creations. Thanks for sharing them.

    Cheers
    Michelle

  5. I found an image of the Boteh Scarf in a magazine and went looking for the pattern and arrived here. Could you tell me where I could get a pattern for this scarf please.
    Thank you,
