Men can be SOOOO hard to stitch for!!!! I have two sons and other than simple (and novelty) beanies and afghans I come across very few patterns that they will actually welcome.  Crochet patterns tend to be more lacy and feminine, so when I learned to knit I had a goal of finding some masculine patterns that were manly man's a tough search!!  LOL  A few weeks ago I sat down with yarn and needles and set to work perfecting the MAN's scarf! I sent pics to my younger son to get approval and this one won out.....other than he said it should be a much darker color....but since lighter colors photograph better I kept going in this color :D 

I am fairly new at writing knit patterns, so if you choose to knit this up please leave me a comment about your experience (good or bad) with my pattern.  It's super simple, only 4 rows repeated, so it's the perfect take a long project. 

***Feel free to make as many of these as you want for profit, but remember to give credit to me, Amy B Stitched, or link back to this page!!***


6 oz worsted weight yarn
size 8 needles

Cast on 24 (pattern is worked in a multiple of 4's)
Row 1: [K1, P3] across.
Row 2: [K2, P2] across.
Row 3: [K3, P1] across.
Row 4: P across.

Repeat rows 1-4 until scarf measures 72" or desired length.  Bind off in pattern on row 1.
Weave in ends securely.

after photographing I realized this pic shows the finished end of the if you are looking at your scarf and you say "it doesn't quite look the same"......just turn it upside down :D


  1. Adorable knit indeed! I had been searching for some masculine patterns too. I believe it is now over. My husband usually approves of cashmere scarves. I wanted to knit a crochet scarf for him. I wasn’t sure if he will approve of it. I showed him this picture and got his approval. Thank you! Keep posting such valuable blogs.

    1. So glad you found the pattern and hoping your husband enjoys his scarf!! Cashmere sounds lovely!!
