Badminton Baktus

A KAL for the BSGFPB in May, the lovely and simple Baktus. I had some cotton sockotta yarn I bought ages ago that I never felt compelled to use for socks. After seeing all the work people do with sock yarns for scarves on ravelry.com I decided to join in on the knit-a-long with this stash buster. The pattern is available for free at flickr, where you can see many other versions with all kinds of yarns, and also look at ravelry.

I love it, it’s a nice, light scarf for the spring, summer, and fall. It’s low maintenance since I can throw it in the wash, the tassels won’t even fray. They are the “gossamer tassel” from the Vogue book, Knitting on the Edge.

EDIT: I lost this in the wind at Logan Airport. … such is life.
