One of my most popular free pattern over in ravelry is my Crochet Baktus, scarf. It is my version of an extremely popular and ingenious knitted scarf that was all over Norwegian blogs a couple of years ago.The theory of the project is brilliant and simple. Beginning with only a few stitches, you increase evenly at only one side of the knitting in our case, crocheting until you have used half your allotted yarn.From there, you decrease evenly at the same side until your yarn is gone. Voila! You have a very wide, short triangle that forms a wonderful scarf or shawlette and looks endlessly chic and fashionable, especially in stripes or different stitch patterns.
I decided to do the same in crochet. I wrote this pattern years ago and it is on ravelry but strangely , I have read through all my posts and it seems I neglected to post the details of this pattern on my blog. As with all my patterns it is very easy .I think this pattern really lets the yarn shine through .
This pattern was brought to my attention recently when the fabulous Karin posted this wonderful pattern for her shawl edging using my crochet baktus pattern as the base
This has made me realise I have just found the perfect go to quick and easy pattern for those last minute Xmas gifts all I have to do is made the base, and ring the changes with different borders. So thank you Karin for the great idea.
Ohh, if you fancy making it , the free pattern is at the side of my blog.
