Boteh Scarf


I had to put down the DPNs and knitting needles. That’s it. Need a break 🙂

I am pretty proficient in crochet more so than ever in my life. I still have a few issues with reading patterns but that’s what frogs  are for !
I remembered seeing a beautiful ocean wave patterned scarf. Almost like a line of paisleys lined up whooshing down a tiled floor. I found the picture in a crochet flickr group to start and was just smitten with the pattern never having enough faith I could do that. That’s always my stopping moment .. I think oh that’s just too complicated for me I don’t have the skill set.
I need to learn to either stop that voice in my head try and fail or try it and be satisfied I can and did the job.
That voice causes so much doubt everywhere else in my life its not even funny.

 So something amazing happened. I googled the pattern. Found out it was available in the Interweave Press Crochet Summer 2007 Back Issue  Silly me silly silly silly.

I so quickly forgot a few months back I ordered several of the back issues and even got one free in a special promotion they were running.
I HAVE THIS ISSUE !!!
SO out came all the magazines. Yes I need shelves to store supplies its official. I am organizing tonight.
There it is.. in its wavy glory. I broke out the beautiful yarn Christine  sent me for our scarf swap. I wanted to use this because its so soft blue and beautiful it felt like the Boteh. With in minutes I had worked out the pattern, and my hands were shuttling along creating this fabulous-ness.

I can not believe I completely forgot I had all these back issues !
