Asherton Reversible Scarf
Modelled above by my son, this is another present for a friend. The pattern is easy, yet interesting and engaging with its pure geometric lines and it is totally reversible. For me this is one of the best men's scarf patterns out there.
Pattern: Asherton Reversible Scarf
Yarn: Zegna Baruffa, Spring 1, 100% merino, Italian bobbin yarn, 200 g
Needle: 4 mm
Time to knit: 4 evenings
The yarn is very thin - 800 m / 100 g, so I knit it in four threads held together. The color is gray melange, with subtle purple, yellowish, blue and red nuances mixed with the lighter and darker gray and it's a chameleon - dependent on the direction of the light it might look lighter or darker.
The size I chose is 20 cm wide and 160 cm long - I think an average size for a man's scarf. For this size I did three repeats of the pattern in width and ten and a half (the half is for symmetry) repeats of the pattern in length.
This merino is very soft and pleasant to the skin, I hope the new owner would appreciate it. I had ordered 300 g of this yarn, so now I'm knitting a hat to make it a set.
