Easy Knitted scarf or shawl


I found out that this type of scarf is called a BAKTUS SCARF
Its really easy - all the rows are knit
You have some short rows and that's about it!

(if you dont want to knit, but like the finished product, it, and more, are available on http://louisefelice.com )

You will need - 100gms or about 420 yards of 4 ply or sock weight yarn
# 5 US needles (3.74 mm)
Fine yarn works the best but you can use up to double knitting or worsted weight. If you use the thicker yarn I would also use larger needles - go up by one size at least

Abbreviations.
YO: yarn over,
ssk: slip one stitch, knit one stitch, pass slipped stitch over
K: knit

 SOME HINTS:
I bought 2 balls of yarn and started the decreases when i finished the 1st ball.
You can make a longer or smaller scarf using the 2 ball method and not measuring
If you want the same effect, but use a thicker yarn, I would omit the ruffles - ie leave out rows 2 and 5 for a sharper angle or just knit without the short rows)

Instructions:
Cast on 10 sts
Row 1. Knit
Row 2. (short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3 knit
Row 4 Knit
Row 5 - like row 2
Row 6: k 8, YO, knit till end.

Repeat these 6  rows until you have about 70 sts (or used half your yarn!)
Now the decreases start:

Row 1: knit
Row 2:(short row) Knit 7,  put yarn in front of needle, slip one, turn, knit 8, turn
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: like row 2
Row 6: K7, ssk, YO, ssk, knit to end
Repeat these 6 rows till you have 10 sts left

cast off

READY!!!
