Baktus scarf

baktus scarf

I've been meaning to knit this scarf since it was all over blogs here in Norway last fall. And finally I have my own ;) Baktus is one of the creatures that lives in Jens' teeth. And since there is a Baktus scarf there is also a Karius scarf ;) Baktus is in garther st while Karius is knitted in st st.

I love mindless projects like this - perfect for watching tv...
I now I look cross on the photos, but I'm not. It dosn't show, but the sun was up and the light was so sharp I had to peer against the white snow...

  3. Tammy: This yarn did I get in a swap and it's from finland ;)
    But we have some really good yarn stores here in Norway. And online shops...

  5. Deilig skjerf med fin farge! Og det trengs vel, hvis det er 22 kalde grader hos dere :-) Hos oss så er det ikke fullt så kaldt, men vi har noen snømengder jeg ikke har sett maken til på mange år. Det kommer til å ta en evighet før alt dette forsvinner... Også jeg som er så klar for våren... Ja, ja, enkelte ting får man rett og slett ikke gjort noe med :-)

  8. The baktus scarf is beautiful The simple pattern shows off how pretty the yarn is. And it does look especially pretty next to the snow.

    Ha, Ha, you'll laugh to see me brag about our "snow" on my blog. It stayed for a whole two hours! The hills behind us had snow on them for several weeks though!
