Loom Knitting
August 2014
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
145 - 225 yards (133 - 206 m)
approx. 51 x 14 inches, variable sizing

This pattern is one of eight from the e-book “Little Scarves: Baktus and Karius for the Loom”. Alternating two yarns gives the simple Baktus a lot of style. A few little tricks are used to make this easier. Yarn and gauge are entirely flexible here, but this is a fun pattern to use for combining a variegated yarn with a solid yarn.

Loom: The pattern is written for three loom gauges. The peg numbers below are suggested, but directions are included for varying your scarf size.
5/8 inch gauge loom = 28 pegs
½ inch gauge loom = 32 pegs
3/8 inch gauge loom = 36 pegs

Yarn: The photo sample was made in madelinetosh tosh merino light in buttonbox blue and cosmic wonderdust. The amounts below are suggested:
Lace = 110 yards each color
Fingering = 100 yards each color
DK = 90 yards each color
Worsted = 80 yards each color
Bulky = 70 yards each color

The e-book comes with two files. One is a large print 24 point font, and the other is a 12 point font paper-saver file. The book includes 8 patterns, as well as information on variations for your Striped Baktus and a photo gallery. The files are screen reader and tablet friendly.
