I finished my first handspun Baktus Scarf. I can already tell that it won’t be my last. These things are like potato chips – you can’t have just one.
The wood pile is an excellent model in the absence of the human variety. The yarn and the wood act like velcro – pose and shoot, repose and reshoot.
I took way too many photos, in fact, because the light was right and the colors looked beautiful and I snapped 30 before I even blinked.
I made a vow to use more handspun and this scarf is perfect for handspun. In fact, I adore it in my handspun. It almost looks woven, I think.
I knit it exactly according to the pattern. I weighed my yarn first, knit until it was half gone, and then started decreasing. No waste, no fuss, just a great scarf!
I’m already planning my next one.
Absolutely gorgeous!! I can see why you’d want to make another. And another.
How pretty – that looks like a fun scarf to make.
Great use for your handspun – it’s lovely!
Love the colors. Your handspun looks so even knitted up!

Too many photos? nah. Can’t have too many like that! Nor too many of those scarves, what a perfect pattern for handspun.
I love it! How satisfying to have such a beautiful FO from your handspun!
I love it! I have it and the Lacey version queued. A could use for all of the handspun that sits in my stash.
Yay for the Baktus! They are fun to make and yes, perfect for handspun. You simply cannot go wrong! Love yours.
Such a lovely way to show off your own handspun. Baktus is a cozy scarf, too. Maybe we should have a model shot or two. 😀
Love! So fun and quick to knit and such a good result! How about a striped handspun one next?
I love it! I was thinking of making one with some of my handspun and now I definitely will.
It looks fantastic! Such a showcase for your lovely yarn.
Wonderful finished product! I can see how that will get much wear. Now if I only had me some handspun….

Love it! Your handspun looks great in garter stitch.
I finished mine over the weekend. My blog photos didnt’ come out as good with my iphone though!
It’s so versatile. I wore it for the first time yesterday and when it got too hot to wear around my neck, I draped it over my shoulders. I will definitely be making another one.
I love it!! It came out so nicely. I hung beads on twisted fringe off the two long-site points on mine and that worked out quite well. I was able to do this because I miscalculated the half-way point and had yarn leftover! lol
That is fabulous! Wear it well.
Looks awesome! Love the colors of the handspun 🙂
Love it! Looks like a fabulous project for handspun.

It’s a wonderful pattern for handspun. The colors are lovely!
Beautiful! Thank you, you just gave me my next project!
It’s beautiful! I love the colors.
Wow, that’s really beautiful – both the scarf, and your work. I need to make one of those – just bookmarked the pattern. Happy knitting!
I love it! It’s wonderful and so special because it’s from your handspun.
Whoa! I definitely think I need to make one of these! Yours is lovely.
I know what you mean about those things! It’s lovely, Carole.
Your spinning and the final product are awesome and inspiring. I was wondering what to do with my last batch of handspun – now I know. Thanks and congratulations! BTW – your photographs are great too! Tammy
Perfect choice for that yarn. I really like the proportions of the stripes. The eyelet version is good for a solid or semi-solid — that’s what I have on the needles right now. How many grams/ounces of handspun did you use and what were the final measurements?
It’s beautiful. I have had that pattern in my queue for a little while. Glad to know the pattern worked so beautifully. I think it’ll be moving up the line.
Brilliant! It does look sort of woven. More incentive to get spinning again…
NEAT! I adore the colors of that thing.

Anything that is like a potato chip, I must look into . Handspun has the neatest look
The yarn has a very “Noro” look to it – lovely!
Oh, Carole! How very beautiful. You must be so happy!
That IS beautiful, and such a fine use of handspun. I like the no waste, no muss approach.
Pretty, pretty, pretty!!! What a nice way to use up handspun yarn. 🙂
I hope you are feeling better soon!!
Better move this one up on my list. I might just frog another self striping project I never wear.
