Love this simple yet sophisticated design for a guy’s scarf.
Over 900 people have made this design!!! Wow!
An enjoyable project to make. After a repeat or two, you get the hang of it and it moves along quickly. One can make up to four repeats in an evening.

Illimani yarns are among the most luxurious that one can obtain. I was lucky to get some at the yarn shop where I live. Illimani yarn is made possible by a Bolivian National relocated from his homeland to Montreal, Canada. Now, that’s a story. Congrats and thanks to Mr. Alvaro and family.

Mr. Alvaro messaged me when I stashed his yarn some time ago (2016). A very sweet gesture.

Down a needle size to get guage.

Row 16 is written
K2 •(K5, p2, k7); repeat from •
The same stitch pattern can be stated as below:
•(k7, p2, k12, p2, k7). rep from •.
Both are correct.

I had enough yarn to make the scarf longer, but some guys don’t like scarves that are too long. It’s a good length for styling several ways.
