A stunning modern baktus will add a finished look to your wardrobe. Its texture is engaging, enticing, somewhat provocative and won’t bore you.
What is a baktus? It is a triangular scarf which has a dull corner (worn in front), originally knitted from one end to another. However, the description changed with time. Nowadays, baktus could also be a small shawl worn triangular in front.
You might ask why “Moth”? The answer is simple! When I crocheted first several rows in grey, it looked like a moth and I thought that was it!

- Approximately 1100 yds / 1006 m of any Fine (#2) or DK (#3) weight yarn. You may use any type and weight of yarn, but note that your project will look different.
