Lacy Baktus

    by Strikkelise
    Pattern source: Strikkelise's patterns
    Yarn: fiberphile Alchemy Super Squish Sock, colourway Honey
    Needles: 3mm

    Modifications: added a simple "yo k2tog" lace pattern every 8th row

    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
    6. knit
    7. knit
    8. knit

    Repeat until you have 4 stitches left, cast off.

      23" in length. Hope you enjoy knitting this!
      Somehow I've missed your question, sorry! But yes, that's what I would do. :-)

      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

      I just bought some beautiful Lana Grossa Lace Merino in a dark turquoise and it is knitting this pattern beautifully. Thank you for publishing your pattern!

      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.

      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!

      Approximately how much yarn do you need? (Or have I missed that fact somewhere?)

    19. terhimon 9 months ago | reply

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