I finished my baktus. Do I like it? Yes, I do. I really, really do.
It's super snuggly as a scarf but I'm also thinking of the summer and those long alfresco suppers when the sun has dipped and there's a slight chill in the air.
In fact, I'm making another one in cornflower blue.
The details ...
As I mentioned before, I used this pattern as my guide, three balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in 'apple' and a 5mm hook. I'm quite a tight crocheter so using a smaller hook wouldn't have resulted in enough drape as the whole thing is worked in double crochet (US single crochet).
I doubled crocheted all around the edge, then gave it a gentle hand wash and a jolly good blocking before adding the simple pink trim.
