A Perfect Scarf For Him (or Her)

If you look for a scarf pattern to knit for your male relative, I think you'll like this one.  This  cross stitch pattern gives it a more interesting look and it's not complicated to make.  The plus side of it is that you don't even need to have a cable needle.  I love gray in general and I think this color suites men well.  It's a safe color to pick, I think.  This cascade wool has a shiny finish to it.  This makes the pattern popped out even more.   I made this for my step-grandson as a Christmas present

Materials And Direction For A Perfect Scarf For Him

Yarn : Cascade worsted wool

or wool of your choice

Needle: 4.5mm

My scarf is about 7 inches wide. You can add multiple of 7 sts to the cast on make it wider. Then follow the same pattern.

Cast on 39 sts. 
Knit every row for 1 inch ending with right side row. Purl one row on the wrong side. 

Begin pattern as follow;

Row 1: k3, *(C2B, k3) k2; rep from* to last st, k1.

Row 2 and alternate rows: k3, *p5, k2; rep from* to last st, k1.

Row 3: k3, *(k1, C2B, K2) k2; rep from * to last st k1.

Row: 5: K3, *(k2, C2B, k1) k2; rep from * to last st, k1.

Row 7: K3, *(k3, C2B ) k2; rep from * to last st, k1.

Row 8: as row 2.

Rep row 1 to 8 until reaching the length you want ending with row 8. Then do garter stitch border for an inch. Bind off and block piece. 

C2B = Cross 2 Back, do this by knit into back loop of the second st on left needle, don’t slip it off yet. Knit the first st from left needle and slip both sts off at the same time.

Here is a pattern I wrote out this morning if anyone want to start making it along with me. If you find it hard to make C2B then watch video below.
