Sometimes it’s hard to crochet for a guy. My dad loves my work, and has become a lover of yarn as well (hanging out in a yarn shop will do that to ya, I hear.) He asks for scarves, but I don’t want to keep making the same one or two patterns over and over and over. So I’ve decided to write a few, just for him :) This scarf turned out just right: textured for interest, but not lacy or full of shells or picots. Plain enough to be masculine, but still soft and beautiful, and fun to make! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did, and wearing it as much as my dad does!

Stitches: Ch, sc, dc, FpTreb (front post treble crochet)
Yarn: Worsted weight (#4) 640 yards
Shown in Universal Yarn’s Colorburst in Aurora Borealis
Hook: J10/6mm
Sizes: 10” wide, 60” long, blocked

Gauge: 8st x 6 rows = 2”

NOTES:
You can make this scarf narrower or wider by adding or subtracting chains. Just make sure you end up with an even number of chains so you’ll have an odd number of stitches.
