Marco Scarf

One of the four scarves I made for the gents in my home. I’d been eying out this yarn in the stores for months trying to decide what I’d do with it. It has a texture that catches my attention every time I see it:  very soft and warm with the raw wool and uneven speck giving it a fantastic rustic appeal. Eventually I settled on this scarf.

I used a 6mm hook and ‘rib look’ crochet stitch, then added tassels to each end. The ‘rib stitch’ looks more like knit than crochet which I feel is more fitting for men. It’s a high quality yarn made up of a blend of cotton, tweed, wool and acrylic. The end product does justice to the yarn and can be worn in either a smart or casual setting. Versatility is always good.
