Thanksgiving is over and it’s crunch time. Christmas is right around the corner! It’s time to gather any last-minute presents you may have been putting off.
I don’t know about you, but I have some family members where shopping for them is kind of a mystery. Luckily, I can rely on crochet to come up with a thoughtful gift idea. This year, one of my favorite gifts is this men’s scarf knitting pattern.
The Boyfriend Scarf is all about subtle details that look polished and distinguished.
The whole of the scarf is worked using the detailed ribbed stitch for added texture. It’s a good length too, perfect for wrapping up in. The detail that really set this scarf apart though, is the yarn choice.
Plymouth Hot Cakes have built-in color changes. It creates color shifts naturally throughout your projects. This particular project calls for a Grey/Burgundy mix yarn which has shades of cream too. It’s an acrylic wool blend, worsted weight. Perfect for a cozy scarf this season.
This scarf is great for those family members who are hard to shop for. This is a practical, unique gift that they can use for years to come. Make one for your partner or your grandfather.
