Alpine Scarf

Crochet for men is a rare thing. But about half of the people I want to make crochet gifts for this year are men and so came the inspiration to design a crochet scarf pattern that can be worn by men. At it turns out, I think that this scarf is actually unisex, for although it doesn’t have the flower and the frills usually associated with women’s accessories, it does have a lovely snuggly texture that will delight men and women alike.

A rare pic of me arranging the scarf around Dardan.

I used the Alpine stitch to give the scarf a real hygge feel. And by using acrylic yarn it meant that the scarf is not heavy and won’t weigh you down around the next. The two tones of grey really make the mustard stripes pop, but in the near future I will also experiment with a few other cosy colour combinations.

Before we get into the crochet pattern, I would like to send a big thank you to Dardan, who was a very patient model for the scarf.
