by Strikkelise

Pattern source: Strikkelise's patterns

Yarn: fiberphile Alchemy Super Squish Sock, colourway Honey

Needles: 3mm

Love this. <3


Here’s exactly what I did (with a permission from Strikkelise):


CO 4 sts.


Set up rows:


1. knit until 1 st left, yo, k1

2. k1, k1tbl, knit to end

3. knit

4. knit

repeat rows 1-4 once. 6 sts


Lace pattern:


1. knit until 1 st left, yo, k1

2. k1, k1tbl, knit to end

3. k2, *yo, k2tog*, repeat from * until 1 st left, k1

4. knit

5. knit until 1 st left, yo, k1

6. k1, k1tbl, knit to end

7. knit

8. knit


I started the decreases when the shawl measured about 23 inches, unstreched.


1. knit until 3 sts left, k2tog, k1

2. knit

3. k2, *yo, k2tog*, repeat from * until 1 st left, k1

4. knit

5. knit until 3 sts left, k2tog, k1

Repeat until you have 4 stitches left, cast off.

    OH. my. word. I knit this several years ago and couldn't remember the name of it... finally found it and realized I never saved it as a favorite! Thank you - I'm off to make another!

    I too want to knit this lovely Baktus scarf.. I am thinking of using Mochi Plus or Alpaca but haven't decided as yet.. It is really a little different and not too lacy.. I may be back if I run into problems.. Thank you for sharing it with us. Sandy

  • Leslie Ritchie 2y

    Hi, love this pattern..,
    Do you start the modification with the yo or the k2tog, I think you would do the k2tog and then the yo ? Also do you do this in the decrease on the 8 row ?
    If any one knows I would appreciate an answer, Thanks.
  • Edna 2y

    Leslie Ritchie I haven't made this yet but I would knit one stitch first then do yo, k2tog across the row ending with one or two knit stitches. Should be no problem working this on a decrease row, Hope this helps!

  • Bridget 1y

    Approximately how much yarn do you need? (Or have I missed that fact somewhere?)
  • Terhi PRO 1y

    Bridget I used about 300 meters, but you can easily make it bigger if you like.
