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.

  2. OMGosh, what a stately and handsome young man here. Love how you styled his scarf. The scarf is awesome like art of M.C. Escher.
    And it was great to hear from you just now; mahalo for your sweet comment about my Frankie. I love them so and am so glad I had treated myself to Halloween yarn.

    1. Thank you, Alex did grow a lot these last couple of years. I too love the 3D effect of this scarf pattern and you are right - it does remind of Escher's impossible 3D paintings.
