Mistake Rib Scarf
Need that perfect project for a man in your life? This project uses a masculine pattern stitch and some great yarn to make a men’s scarf as well as a little matching accessory for you. Ribbing is a quintessential knitting pattern stitch, but if you add just one fewer stitch in a k2, p2 ribbing pattern, you get a mistake rib pattern that has great texture and looks fantastic.
