Norwegian triangular scarf - baktus: patterns and knitting details

A scarf is an integral part of women's wardrobe, so today we want to tell you about how to knit a fabulously beautiful and cozy Norwegian triangular scarf - baktus. The shape of the scarf resembles an ordinary kerchief, which will become a real decoration in your wardrobe.

Recommended yarn composition: merino, merino / acrylic, cotton / acrylic, microfiber or viscose. The yarn must hold the form to get voluminous and attractive folds. We will need 200-300 grams of yarn, about 600 meters. Spokes: from 3 to 4.

Additionally, for the work we need:

1. 50 markers or paper clips, if there is no necessary number of markers. You can also use colored strings of different colors.

2. Hook 1.5-2 numbers more than the spokes used.

We type loops in the following way: we take a hook by 1.5 -2 numbers more than the number of knitting needles, by hook number 5, with knitting needles number 3.5.

With a hook, you need to tie a chain of air loops, turn it upside down, pick up the top loop and put each loop on the knitting needle. You will get a row of beautiful air loops. You can gain loops in the usual way, but then the edges of the baktus scarf will not look so impressive and elegant.

After a set of extreme loops, it is time to take on our markers or paper clips. We need the following on the knitting needle: 12 loops, * hang the marker, 11 loops *, repeat from asterisk to asterisk until the last 12 loops remain, put them on and begin to knit.

IMPORTANT! Loops must be dialed from the end where we have a tail from the dial-up row, so that after putting on the last 12 loops, we have a working thread to the ball!

This way you will have 288 loops and 25 markers (clips).

Begin knitting:

In all rows of the loop you need to knit facial. Knit shortened rows using the entanglement method at the end of each row.

Tie the first six loops, twisting the right knitting needle, throwing a working thread on it, as shown in the photo, turn around and knit in the opposite direction to the hem. Edge hinges at the end of the row should be knitted from the back, at the beginning of the row should be removed.

1 row: (front) first loop to remove, knit facial 5 loops and make a circle around the right knitting needle;
2 row (purl) to knit facial 6 loops;
3 row (front) first take off, fasten 5 front loops, tie curl with the next front loop, another five front loops and twist the right knitting needle again as shown in the picture;
4 row (purl) to knit facial 12 loops;
5 row (front) first remove, fasten all the loops to the obviv, remove the marker, knit the entangle with the next loop together, knit 4 more loops with the front loop (total 17 loops are knitted) to make a twist;
6 row (purl) to knit all the loops face up to the end of the row
7 row (front) first take off, fasten all the loops before obviv, twist together with the next loop, fasten 5 more loops and obviv;
8 row (purl) knit all the loops face up to the last two loops. To knit the following loops first over the front one and then behind the back wall. (It turns out we added one loop), knit the edge one in the usual way.
9 row (front) first take off, fasten all the loops before obviva, remove the marker, knit the entangle with the next loop together, fasten 4 more loops with the front loop, twist;
10 row (purl) knit all the loops face up to the end of the row;
11 row (face) first take off, fasten all the loops before obviva, knit obviv with the next loop together, knit 5 more loops with facial loops and make curl;
12 row (purl) to knit all the loops face.

In every eighth row, you should make additions - in order not to get confused and not forget about additions, outweigh the marker or paper clips as you knit.

Repeat rows 5 through 12 until all dialed loops are used.


In the longest row tie up the last 6 loops, turn and knit back to the edge. In the next front row do not knit these 6 loops, twist, turn and knit to the end. In the next front row do not tie up 5 loops (count from the last twist), twist, turn and knit to the end.

Do not forget to make cuts and extensions in the right edge of the scarf, as indicated in the diagram. Slots must be made every 13 ribs, counting them on the front side.

In the purl row, close the 11 loops in the usual way (do not remove the first and second markers and do not throw them from row to row until the work on the last slit is completed). You just need to count the vertical loops and position the next slot above the previous one.

Flip the last remaining loop on the left needle.

Using the twist way, type 12 loops and pull the first loop from the right needle through the last looped loop, pulling the thread well. You will get 11 loops scored, continuing to knit the row in the opposite direction, as it was before the looping.

You will get a cozy Norwegian baktus, the size before washing is 135 cm length in the longest place, 67 width in the widest place and 56 perpendicular to the dial string. By weight 141 grams, a total of 485 meters. After washing the scarf can increase and finish.
