This ultra-light, ultra-soft Baktus scarf was knitted with leftover Malabrigo Lace yarn from my previous knitting project, Muir. I had 40 grams of yarn left and had queued this pattern in Ravelry for a long time. It was the perfect match and I couldn’t have timed it better. Spring is here and this simple, knitted scarf is just right for cool days.
I’ve worn it almost every day and it’s become my favourite hand knit so far.
Pattern: Baktus Scarf from Strikkelese
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace Alpine Pearl
The Malabrigo yarn is, as usual, to die for. Ridiculously soft and yummy. I always buy mine from Yarn and Kisses. I’ve found that it has the best price in Australia and the range is always getting bigger. I might even have a Malabrigo giveaway in a few weeks time since I love it so much. *hint hint*
Talking about loving things, I love the Baktus scarf pattern so much that I’m thinking of starting another one. My bro-in-law, James, gave me wool recently and I think I’ll knit a striped Baktus next. I’ve wanted a striped Baktus ever since I saw Oiyi’s Villain scarf. How gorgeous is her scarf!
I don’t have enough wool yet but I’ve asked James to buy one more ball of each colour. I’m contemplating whether to knit the original Baktus scarf or try the lacy one. I’ve searched Ravelry and no one has deliberately striped their lacy baktus. Hmm… not sure which to knit.
What do you think?
A stunning lace scarf & breathtaking paradise
What happened to Muir?
I still knit!
