Baktus scarf

October 2008
This pattern is available for free.

Please read the FAQ on my designer page before using one of my patterns.

IMPORTANT: The pattern is on a Flickr page, in the description text of the photo. Click “more” to see the whole description.

This is my version of a scarf that was all over the Norwegian blogs a couple of years ago.

The principle is to take one or a couple of skeins, and knit a triangle using your exact amount of yarn.
A good way to use up one of those single skeins of sock yarn in bright colours.
It works with any kind of yarn, but I prefer a less than bulky yarn.

This is a garter stitch scarf. If you make it in stockinette stitch, you will have the Karius version.

Karius and Baktus are two characters in a Norwegian children’s classic.

Mustaavillaa has made a lacy version of this scarf, you can see her notes here.

Please see my designer page before asking permission to sell any of my patterns or finished products from my patterns. Thank you.

Some people have asked my permission to translate my Baktus pattern and post the translation on the internet.

Here are three translations I have OK’d.
However, I cannot guarantee the content, since I don’t speak German, Portuguese, or Dutch.

People have also translated the Baktus pattern into languages like Italian, and I have suggested they post links to their translations in the comments section. I am not able to go through translations or otherwise check them, so if you use a translation it is at your own risk!
