I'm not the first one to knit this scarf, and I'm sure I will not be the last. On ravelry it says there are 613 Baktus projects. Baktus is a lovely, easy, and fun scarf to knit. And there are all kinds of different versions popping up all around blogland. Want to see some?
Go here for a striped version, or Hege's Baktus or Heike made even two Baktus scarves. I like this (non rav link) lacey version (rav link) too, might want to knit one of those.
Here's the ravelry link to many more, but I'm sure you all know this pattern already.
pattern: Baktus by Strikkelise
yarn: Knit Picks Bare, 70% merino 30% silk, dyed by me , 1 skein
size: widest point (deep): 12.5 inches, length: 55 inches from tip to tip
I found the instruction for the little yarn balls at the ends in the book "Domino Knitting" by Vivian Hoxbro
start-finish: March 28 - 30 yeah, I'm behind in showing you my FO's.
conclusion: It's a fun knit, except I didn't like to have to weight the yarn ball so I would know when to turn back.
How did you who knit that scarf deal with that?
This is also a wonderful pattern for the wildest sock yarn, the one you can't seem to knit socks with, or anything else, because it's so wild. Baktus can take it!
Bea, for this beautiful yarn and the cute sheep mug! I love both!
Herta, for wonderful lace knitting patterns. I saw several projects I'd like to knit from these magazines! It's amazing to think you've knit some of them, even the curtains!
I'm very grateful to have such nice online friends!
