When I made a silk lace shawl a few years ago I had some silk leftover. This is a lace weight mulberry silk from Ixchel yarns. Charly (Ixchel bunny on Rav) spins and dyes beautiful yarns, angora, mohair, silk, lots of yummy stuff. Anyway I didn’t have a lot of this silk left so I thought it would make a nice light weight baktus for summer. To do something different I decided to add a lace edging. The basic instruction for what I did was:
All increase rows: knit to the last 10 stitches, (yo, k2tog) 4 times, yo k2.
All decrease rows: knit to the last 13 stitches, (k2tog yo) 5 times, k2tog k1.
No knitting through the back of the stitch.
I continued this eyelet pattern into the ends ( see graphs below). I like the little neckscarf that resulted from this. It is quite small; just big enough to wrap around my neck and tie like the original Baktus pattern.
