View Full Version : Man's scarf pattern
07-26-2008, 11:26 AM
For Christmas gifts this year, I want to make all the men in my life (1 Daddy, 1 Husband, 2 sons, 4 nephews) scarves. I need a masculine pattern that's easy. Any suggestions? I'm using Red Heart Camouflage 100% acrylic.

Knitpicks.com has several really nice freebie scarf patts for men.
I made these for my sons for Christmas last year:

Irish Hiking scarf is always a great unisex scarf, so is SIlvers Palindrome scarf (which I prefer because it is reversible).
You might want to check knitty as well.

Here are a few free Ravelry patterns:
I'm making a Scrunchable Scarf (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/scrunchable-scarf)for my dad for Xmas. I just chose a strong solid color & it looks pretty masculine. :shrug:
You can see some WIP pics on my blog (http://laikabear.blogspot.com). :happydance:
I also liked the Corrugator (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-corrugator), and the Noro Striped scarf (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/noro-striped-scarf)(but I think Noro can be kind of itchy and the scarf is a little flamboyant...)
If you are a little more patient, there is a really neat argyle scarf that is done with double knitting in the book Son of a Stitch & B*tch that is really masculine. Here (http://cashmereblend.blogspot.com/2008/03/still-here.html) is a pic of one WIP from someone's blog. Actually, that blog, Cashmere Blend, is a guy who does a lot of really nice scarves. He doesn't blog anymore though. :sad:
BTW, if you aren't in Ravelry and none of my links work, I bet the patterns are searchable online. But you should join!! :mrgreen:
