My husband doesn’t ask for a lot when it comes to knitwear, but every once in a while he does mention that there’s something he’d like and I am powerless to ignore it.

Laphroaig is my reply to his wish for a perfect, simple man-scarf. He wanted a classic wrap that he could wear a little dressier for work or casually on the weekend. So this gorgeous tweed, simple texture, and ribbing will work equally well with a dress shirt or a flannel.

And although I’ve included instructions so you can modified the pattern easily for ANY length or width, he wanted this exact size. Long enough to wear it straight down, wrapped around his neck, or folded flat inside a jacket -- and wide enough to be cozy in each of those variations.

If you scroll down to the last photo, it looks like I did OK. This is the face you want to see when you give someone a handknit, right?
