Modification Mondays: Lacy Baktus

Lacy Baktus

Original Pattern: Baktus Scarf

Knitter Extraordinaire: Terhi (Rav Id)

Mods: Turned the simple, textured Baktus scarf pattern into a lacy version by including eyelet rows.

What Makes This Awesome: This modification is quite unusual-  the mod became so popular, it was turned into it's own pattern. Another Ravel-er simply did up her mods and photos into a pdf, and voila! A new pattern was born. I personally have such a weakness for garter stitch eyelet. I love the texture, and provides so much visual interest. I'm not the least bit surprised that since it became it's own pattern, over 1500 people have knit it - it's gorgeous! Project page is here.

I love the first photo of her in it as well - even with the photography she puts a twist on the original pattern and how you can wear it. Lovely. :)

I definitely will be knitting this one (I went through all my yarn the other day and found lots of sock scraps...)!

LOVE this! I've made one Baktus already and am dying to do another lacy version.

I loved this when I first saw it - and her striped version too. The eyelet rows definitely add interest to the garter stitch scarf.

Such a great modification, I am not surprised it has become its own pattern..
