Boteh Scarf

August 16, 2008

This is my attempt at the Boteh Scarf pattern by Kathy Merrick, published in Interweave Crochet, Spring 2007. Inspired by Stitchywitch’s version, I decided to use Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino to make the scarf. The colour is Indian Summer. I used 1 skein. 

I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out but I must admit, I’m not as much in love with it as I thought I would be. There’s a few mistakes where I zoned out a bit and the edging could be a bit better spaced. Also, it’s not as long as I’d have liked – but that’s what you get for not checking your gauge I guess! That said, it is a very easy pattern (if you pay attention) and very quick too. There is a mistake in the pattern, however, so check out corrections here

I made it with the intention of giving it as a Christmas gift (yes, I’m starting early!) for my sister-in-law and I probably will still give it to her. I think the colours are lovely – just her sort of thing, so hopefully she’ll like it.

    The scarf came out lovely, I wouldn’t worry about the imperfections.

    This is so pretty! I love how the color flows with the movement of the scarf. Great job.

    Hi Joanna,

    Thanks very much. The pattern was originally published in Interweave Crochet Spring 2007. However, they now have the pdf for sale on their website here:

    Hope that helps!

      At that site can you buy the whole magazine or just the boteh pattern?

        Hi there – it’s just the pattern but I think there are other patterns from that issue available too.
