A bactus is a Norwegian knitted scarf of irregular triangular shape, where one end is much longer than the other, and the legs are made with an uneven edge. Classic baktus knits on the needles, simple garter stitch. It is customary to perform it from sectionally colored yarn, which has lots of different colors. Thanks to such a range, baktus, despite simple knitting, is beautiful and decorative.
A scarf can have different sizes, it depends on the figure of the person who is going to wear it. But he must be elongated, which allows not to turn it into a shawl. In this model of baktus, the width at the top is 35 cm, length - 1 m. For knitting the scarf presented in the photo, you need about 100 grams of yarn of a suitable composition (in this case, blended yarn consisting of wool and acrylic is chosen), long needles of the recommended number (in this case number 4), a marker and a row counter.

type 3 loops
From the first and the last row of work we perform garter stitching. This means that all loops, with the exception of the edge ones, are performed with facial or purl - to whom it is convenient. Figure in both cases will be identical. In each even row is the addition of loops. It is performed on one side of the bactus, which for convenience should be marked with a marker. In order not to get an unnecessary hole from the last loop (before the edge), we loosen 2 loops: one behind the front wall, then, without removing the loops from the left knitting needle, from it another front for the rear wall. loops 2 loops
 we knit 2 loops
In this way we knit the first 10 rows. At this point there should be 8 loops on the spoke (along with the edges).  we knit the first 10 rows Then start zigzagging on that side of the bactus in which the addition of loops is done. To do this, in the 11th row, the first loop is removed without knitting,the second is sewn and then the broach is performed: the right loop is thrown on the left and returns to the left knitting needle, becoming edge.  pulling is done

So you need to close 3 loops. As a result, there will be 5 loops (with edging) in row 11 on the spoke.
 5 loops remain
Next, the technology repeats from 2 to 10 rows. In the 6th row, the addition of 1 loop is again made. Further, the odd rows fit without an addition, even with an addition. In this way, another 10 rows are performed and, to the 21st row, there are 10 loops on the spokes (with edge loops). In the 22nd row we begin again to knit a clove according to the previously described technology.
 from the previously described technology
Repeat the technology of tying teeth to the end of the first, long side of the leg baktus We knit with the addition until the moment when the maximum width of baktus does not reach 30 cm, and the length is 1 m.Having completed the next zigzag, we begin to form the second side of the leg of this triangle. To do this, we first form the vertex of the triangle using the partial knitting method.

1, 2 series: we remove the edge, we sew the following 2 loops and turn the work, leaving the remaining loops on the left knitting needle annymi. Back knit 3 loops, and edging knit front. 3, 4 rows: remove the edge, we sew 3 loops, turn and back knit as in the 2nd row. And so in each subsequent odd row we add 1 knit loop. When the number of knitted loops reaches 5, we begin to close them as they did when tying teeth. We close 5 loops, we sew the next 2 loops from the left knitting needle and start working again with the technology of partial knitting. And so on until the end of the second side of the leg. We close the last loops, steam off the finished product and baktus is ready.
