The Rough Rib Scarf design is rugged, burly and the perfect stitch pattern for a man. The broken rib construction is a simple 2×2 ribbing. Cast on an uneven number of stitches, any multiple of 4 stitches plus 3, so that the knit and purl stitches don’t line up. Broken rib is all about texture; the broken columns of knits and purls allow the scarf to lay flat and hang smooth. Plus it’s reversible.

My top choices include:
 Malabrigo Worsted and size 8 needles
 Baby Alpaca Grande and size 10 ½ needles
 Debbie Bliss Winter Garden and size 13 needles

Choose yarn depending on how chunky you want the scarf to look and how much time you want to spend knitting. The bulkier the yarn, the less stitches cast on, the faster the knit.
