This extra long scarf makes a great gift for a special guy in your life. (It also works for the ladies - it’s super cozy!) Alternating post stitches create the look of directional arrows pointing westwards. Holding two strands of yarn together creates a tweedy look while also making this scarf extra warm to protect against a harsh winter.
