Crochet Tutorial: The Gentleman’s Scarf

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!

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

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
