Hi dudes!

I knitted this scarf a few months ago, but had yet to post it here. I wanted to make a baktus scarf (And be cool like a Norwegian) but, I get bored super quickly with garter stitch. AND I wanted to try out illusion/shadow knitting. Hence, this scarf was born.

For those of you who don't know. The Baktus scarf is a pattern for a triangular scarf which is made in garter stitch and is cool in Norway.

So, on with the story. I went yarn shopping one day and bought a ball of Noro Kureyon to make my scarf with. It cost me $13 for the one ball which is more than I would ever pay for any yarn. But it was SOOOOO pretty. I already had a ball of el-cheapo black wool to use with it. I used 4mm needles which produced a scarf that was 148cm long and 25cm wide at its widest point.

It's like a magic scarf, because it has a chevron, but only if you look at it from the right direction. It's pretty useful for freaking out drunk friends at parties.

And here are some pictures.

Look at the magic!

And here is the artistic shot.

And this is what it looks like on.

And here is the link to the pattern.

Hey, that is pretty neat to see the "hidden" chevrons!  The scarf looks really nice! The black with the long color stripes of the Noro look really well together.  Great job and thanks for sharing! Smiley

That's beautiful! I love love LOVE the colors, and the stripy pattern is cool! I wish I had the patience to do that. :-) What a wonderful thing to have for this winter.
