Making scarves for men can be a real pain – and not because they ask for anything special, but because they don’t. Plain and solid seems to be a winner in a masculine scarf, and that spells hours of monotony for the crocheter who soon wishes they hadn’t offered to make one.
Sneak in a little bit of interest with the gorgeous subtle texture of granite stitch and the inches will go by much easier. Plus, you’ll end up with an attractive, useful scarf that’s sure to get worn.
