Pattern: Boteh Scarf by Kathy Merrick, in Interweave Crochet — Spring 2007.
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy sock yarn, in “Lipstick Lava” (I think #270). I paid $22 for one skein of 450 yards, and have enough left to maybe make a couple of wrist warmers. Good deal for such beautiful color variegation.
Hook: 4mm Susan Bates Silvalume
Modifications: I joined the pointy tips of each motif to the side of the next one while crocheting the border, to create a smoother snaky look.
My mom gave me a Jiffy steamer that she wasn’t using, and I tried it for the first time to block wool on this project. Worked like a dream! So much easier than washing.
