Baktus-inspired little scarf with a feminine but sober bird’s eye border. This scarf is built in two identical halves, joined by grafting. The Baktus shape is achieved with a modified bird’s eye lace border, a beginners’ pattern of multiple yarn overs followed by bound off stitches. The scarf can be knitted in any yarn, 100 grams of fingering or sportweight yarn will produce a decently-sized scarf for an adult. The first stitch of every row is slipped purlwise to cre- ate a nice chainette edge; on binding off also slip the first stitch to be bound off purlwise to make sure that the edge is continuous. Baktus is a scarf created by Strikkelise.
