Last winter, I decided my boyfriend’s neck looked far too cold, and was in need of a scarf. Specifically, a crocheted scarf. So I set about crocheting him one.
Being a manly man, this scarf needed to be a manly scarf of epic proportions. I started crocheting a base chain and kept going and going…then I turned and started single crocheting back again.
The problem then began that the scarf was just too long. Winter turned to Spring, then Summer came along and my boyfriend’s neck was still cold (we live in the North of England, it’s always cold here). Nearly a year later and it is finally finished. Here it is, behold the ManScarf:
Okay maybe it’s not that long, but at 100 inches (250 cm) it’s quite long! It’s made from the excellent Indie yarn by Sirdar which feels really nice and is good to work with. It also looks pretty cool.
As the yarn is quite thick, I invested in my biggest hook yet – a 12mm one! Being by far the biggest hook in my box, he ended up being a bit of a bully to my smaller hooks:
He’s just so mean and feels he is superior – he makes the other hooks call him Captain Hook (get it?!).
Despite the scarf taking nearly a year to make, I did like making it as it was straight forward but it does look quite good. The yarn I used is super nice, I’d definitely use it again as there are some funky colours available.
