It works as a scarf but still not as l want it
So BAKTUS MK3 will need to be made
the increase will be the same
the stitch the same
but l'll use 3 x 50grm balls of yarn instead of 2 x 50grm balls
l want it to drape better so you can see the point of the triangle!
and l'll make it in a colour thats more me...loved this yarn in the ball
but just not me really...maybe try a plain colour!
for those who have no idea what l'm taking about hehehe not hard that one as l ramble on lol
A BAKTUS IS...... long triangular Norwegian Scarf that wraps around the neck and ties loosely at the front originally a knitted scarf
but the variations are as long as a piece of string!!!
l've seen them.....
but originally l think it was a 'use up' project for 2 x 50grm balls of fine sock yarn
made in Norway and named after a dental cartoon
NORWEGIAN MUM her explanation
