Cartridge Rib Stitch Baktus - Project Instructions

As promised in my last post, here are the project instructions for the Cartridge Rib Stitch Baktus.

This project was a modification of the ever popular Baktus pattern by Strikkelise, which is available here. Just like the original, the Catridge Rib Baktus is designed to use exactly one skein of sock yarn. The needle size is up to you and gauge is not important. Happy days!

Project Notes:


  • Begin by weighing your yarn and keep a mental note.

  • Set up:

Cast on 4 stitches

  • Increase Section:

Row 1: k1, kfb, knit to end
Row 2: p all 
Rows 3: k1, kfb, knit to end of row
Row 4: knit all
Row 5: p1, pfb (purl in front and back of stitch), purl to end
Row 6: knit all

Keep repeating the above until you have used up half of your yarn. Before you start decreasing, verify that you have used up half of your skein by checking on its weight from time to time.

Enjoy!
