Crochet Tutorial: The Gentleman’s Scarf

This time of year I am often asked to design gift ideas for men. I literally saw a photo of the perfect scarf and thought “I could make one like that!!” A couple nights ago, I actually dreamt about how I was going to create such a handsome piece.

Gentleman's Scarf

Once I started, it was quite a challenge to put the design in my head into an intricate yet easy to learn cable type stitching and still keep a masculine feel. This is my finished product.

Gentleman's Scarf

“The Gentleman’s Scarf” will be perfect for the man in your life. Mine was willing to model for me to demonstrate how handsome he looks wearing one. Just in time for the holiday season!

Gentleman's Scarf

The bulk of the stitches make it very cuddly and soft. (awww!)

  3. This pattern was so amazing and looks so professionally done! It was also incredibly easy to follow and I even shortened it to just wear around the back of the neck as a fashion piece! I love that it can be manly enough for a man to wear, yet gorgeous enough for a woman to wear! One of my favorite pieces!

  6. Absolutely loving this pattern and already thinking of more to make 9 rows in. My question is why we do not repeat row 8 after the second set of ‘x’ ‘s? Thank you for the beautiful pattern & have a GREAT day 😊

  7. I completed row 5 as shown on the video to have 68 ch3 spaces. But when I tried to do 270 stitches in row 6 there were stitches left over. The last chain 3 on row 5 made the row 273 stitches. What am I doing wrong?

  8. Amanda, You might be working sc into ch1 at the end of the rows. Try to adjust your number of stitches to get back to the 270 and when you are finishing off the ends you can use the sc to even out the edge if there’s noticeable unevenness. Hope this helps, good luck 😊

    • You can definitely make the same amount (271 ch) or any odd number. If you are starting with a foundation single crochet row, FSC any even number. Just like how I show in the written pattern, I FSC’d 270 but if I were to do a chain and then sc across the ch, you should have a beginning ch of 271. I hope this makes sense and doesn’t further confuse you. Enjoy the pattern! ~Nadia

  9. Hi! This pattern is really gorgeous and true to it’s name. Does this pattern use up the 2 skeins of yarn? How much is left? I am trying this out with a different yarn and am not sure how many skeins to buy.

  12. If I wanted it to be shorter and just drape over so each end reaches my his (5ft10inches) how many would I chain start?

    Love this pattern thank you.

  15. Thanks for the pattern. I watched the video then adjusted the dimensions according to what i needed. The patterned worked up very quickly and looks really nice. I like the cable effect a lot. Can’t see how to add a photo, though.

  16. I’m having a problem with Row 5. I end up with 67 ch-3 spaces with 2 sc leftover. I did the math just to make sure, and 270 / 4 = 67.5 not 68, so … help! I just ended up doing the ch-3 and then doing the last sc in the end of the row (even though I couldn’t “skip 3”). Any other suggestions?

  17. Thank you for making this pattern available for free. I’d like to make this pattern for an elderly gentlemen (95) who has “shrunk” with age. He’s about 5’5″…could you tell me how to make the scarf shorter without messing up the beautiful pattern?

  18. I LOVE THIS SCARF! I’m a beginner so this will be fun although I do admit to a little intimidation with the cross stiches but I’m up to the challenge. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern. Can hardly wait for the finish. Thanks again!
