Bactus Scarf

Between Christmas and New Year I knitted Strikkelise’s Bactus scarf. Looking at all those pictures on ravelry made me want to have my own! Plus, the (English, German, Dutch, Portuguese) pattern is very easy to follow.

Half of my Bactus is knitted in red and pink, the other half in red and orange sock yarn. I added i-cords to each end and used bigger needles than suggested for this yarn, as I love the feel of sock yarn in loose-knit garter stitch.

It turned out quite big: each side measures 75 cm (29.5″), which makes it almost a wrap.

Yes I think I would add a crocheted edge 🙂

I sort of like the rough, un crocheted edges.

I think it works really well as it is, and there’s plenty going on, so you don’t need the extra detail of a crochet edge.
