Men’s Color Block Scarf (Free Pattern)

My first few attempts to make a scarf for my husband fell flat. He prefers simple things without fuss and the first couple I made were too skinny or busy for his tastes. I kept trying to make him something “nice” and overlooked his interpretation of nice by trying to make something that challenged me to try something new. Eventually I hit on something he liked with a simple color block scarf.

I ended up loving the colors in this scarf and made myself a circle scarf with the leftover yarn (see my circle scarf here!). He doesn’t seem scandalized by the matching scarves so he must really like it!

Happy crocheting!
