I loved Tea's Baktus so much that I just had to start knitting one myself. I happened to have this multi-colored sock yarn lying about, that I decided to use. I thought it would be interesting to see how the yarn behaves, with the increases and decreases. Right now I'm getting some funky pooling. I'm going to give this to the 4yo, if she'll agree to use it. I think I might have mentioned before that she's a bit picky about her clothing..

Anyway, this is how far I've gotten on the Baktus so far:


  1. I think it will be gorgeous! Can't wait to see it when you're done! I love the colors of the yarn!

  2. Michele - thanks! Btw, you can see the yarn still skeined up here:

  3. Hmmm, perhaps a silly question, but what is a baktus?

  4. Theresa - it's a scarf. :) You can find the pattern here:

    There is also a Baktus-group on Flickr, here:
