Crochet Tutorial: Classic Man Scarf

Crochet Tutorial: Classic Man Scarf

It starts with a chill in the air and dew on the grass, the time of the year when we begin to add an extra layer for warmth. Why not do that in style for someone you love? With a touch of old-fashioned elegance and sophisticated elements of Jay Gatsby, The Classic Man Scarf is the perfect accessory for the man in your life. I have a personal bias with this particular model, being that he happens to be the man in MY life! This scarf is very versatile and can be worn in a multitude of ways as shown in these photos. The length provides possibility for many different looks.

I combined a variety of stitches and textures to create this lovely piece that is sure to please even the most fashion conscious individual. Using the waffle stitch, half double crochet ribbed stitches, and waves, this multi-textured scarf is a perfect design for anyone. My design was made with three colors of soft yarn giving it all the comfort and warmth needed when we can’t get away from the cold weather.

Whether it’s a cool autumn day and Jack Frost is nipping at your nose or there is a Polar Vortex chilling you to the bone, The Classic Man Scarf is the perfect accessory for all those times you need to keep yourself nice and toasty, but still look fantastic doing it!
