    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.

      Hi Ya, I love this pattern! I just bought some "real" yarn from my first trip to a real yarn shop! It was like Christmas morning being in that store. I bought Mirasol Hacho 100% Merino Wool in a DK weight. It just coming gorgeous! The colorway is browns and a slight beige. It s just beautiful! Thank you so much for the pattern!
      My question is this, the pattern written in the revision form says when it reaches 23" start the decrease side, but does it mean 23" in length or 23" in width?
      I didn't weigh the yarn before I started so I can't judge by weight!
      Thanks again for the great pattern!

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

      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

      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.

    15. Quilting Duchess 7 months ago | reply

      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!
