Now that the gift is out of the bag... I can share this beautiful scarf made for my friend Amanda who is getting married this fall. I thought this persian style design was reminiscent of fluttering leaves. Amanda has a strong connection with trees and is using leaves in the decorations for her big day. You can find her at http://amandaspatch.com/

The pattern is a little confusing at first, and for me, working with the fine sock wool takes getting used to. The first couple of triangles need to be counted pretty closely but after that, your fingers get into the groove. I made another Boteh scarf out of autumn colored variegated yarn which turned out nicely as well.

I found the pattern at the Interweave Store


  1. Jen, I am so, so, so excited about this and cannot wait for it to arrive: you are just the sweetest, coolest, most awesome friend EVER!!

  2. Aw thanks... but wait til it gets there before you decide for sure! :oP

  3. Jen,

    I'm over here from Amanda's site to tell you that your wedding gifts are just lovely!


  4. It got here and I am even more convinced that you are the sweetest, coolest, most awesome friend EVER!! lol... as are the rest of the SH gang!

  5. Thank you Jeanne! As Amanda said, there is something special about giving gifts that have some heart to them... they don't have to be expensive or 'perfect' to make someone's day.

    Amanda... it takes one to know one. ;o)
