There’s something about the Baktus scarf that makes it a pattern I often find myself compelled to knit. Something about that combination of garter stitch and sideways triangular construction that’s just satisfying for the soul. And that basic, easy-to-remember pattern just begs for experimentation. I’m especially fond of the lacy variation by Terhi Montonen, with which I’ve knitted one of my go-to accessories. And now I’ve added this striped, variegated, blue-red version to my growing collection. Whipped up with a mere 100g of Louisa Harding’s Grace silk and wool blend, and stretched quite a bit on the blocking mat, the thing drapes nicely around the neck and looks much more sophisticated than it actually is.
I know I’ll be making more. And adding a twist of my own, next time, probably.
