2020 : Baktus Scarf
This is one of my favourite comfort knit projects. Weigh your yarn, choose an appropriate needle size and cast on 4 stitches!
Craft : Knit
Pattern : Baktus by Strikkelise
Yarn : Bulky weight, single ply gifted from a friend. Check out Wolfgang Scout for similar yarn
Colour : Dusty Pink & Natural 1 skein of each 200g total
Needle : 7 or 8mm - I can't remember!
Simple and fun two row stripes. You can also adapt the design to elongate the scarf for a narrower middle (increase/decrease every 6 rows for example).
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: k1, kfb, knit the rest of the row.
Row 2, 3 & 4: Knit to end.
Repeat rows 1 through 4 until you have used up half your yarn, or until your scarf is 50% of desired length.
Then decrease 1 every 4th row:
Row 1: k1, k2tog through the back loop. Knit the rest of the row.
Rows 2, 3 and 4: Knit to end.
When you have 4 stitches left, bind off.
k - knit
kfb - knit front and back
k2tog - knit 2 stitches together
