March is really grey this year ... I haven't done any new knitting this month. The wrap in this newsletter is the one I made last summer - on the way to Toronto from Europe. It is one of those speedy projects that require very little thinking - perfect to knit while you are on the plane!
Baktus is a triangular-shaped scarf or a small shawl. It is a perfect neck wrap for a chilly weather.
"Baktus" is a tooth troll from a Norwegian children's book, and Bactus is a play on words from 'bacteria'. Together with "Karius" they teach children to brush their teeth and are destroyed by the dentist.... With the long thin ends hanging down you can see where the association with a tooth came from.
Clean and Simple Design. I used an easy and quick knitting pattern: Garter Stitch - the most common stitch for a Baktus scarf. If you knit in Stockinette, you'll get a Karius Scarf :-) This scarf will surely compliment anything you wear.
