The Man Scarf – Free Knitting Pattern

When you have those men in your life that are so hard to gift for, this is the scarf you need. It tucks into a jacket easily, knits up quickly, and has just enough function to look like you have gone over and above for the gift.

Scarf with a slot to hold the end of it in place

You will need:
– 4-5 balls of yarn (250-300gm) depending on length of scarf required
– 5mm knitting needles
– Darning needle

Cast on 40 stitches

This whole scarf is knit in a fishermans rib – so it has a great texture, and won’t curl. It is a 2 row repeating pattern.
Row 1: Knit 3, purl 1 – repeat over the whole row
Row 2: Knit 2, (purl 1, knit 3) – repeat bracketed section to the last 2, purl 1, knit 1

Continue the pattern for 30cm.

You will now split the scarf into halves – knit the pattern for the first 20 stitches. Slip the remaining 20 onto a stitch holder for now. Continue the pattern on the first 20 stitches for 30 rows. Slip these 20 onto a stitch holder and complete 30 rows on the second 20 stitches. Rejoin the 2 sections as one.

Continue the pattern for all 4-5 balls – or as long as you want your scarf to be. Cast off.
