anti-calima baktus scarf
We had a small sandstorm a few weeks back, possibly calima, possibly something more local. Timur requested a scarf in his school colors to keep it over his mouth and nose if it was ever to occur again. I made it for him very quickly, and today he worn it again - more for coldish strong wind than for sand.
I couldn't find the origins of a "baktus" scarf, but that seems to be the right spelling at least. If you never seen them before - they are very long narrow triangles, very easy to tie. This is a very basic model, all-knit keeping to shape.
