About the Inspiration for the Mens Ribbed Scarf Pattern
This awesome tweedy look yarn was responsible for much of the inspiration for this scarf.
Combine that with a ribbing pattern that creates different looks on both side of the scarf, and this seemed like a great pattern that men would love.
About the Yarn
The sample scarf is made with WeCrochet/KnitPicks Brava Tweed in the mink colorway. Brava has been one of my go to worsted weight yarns. It was very exciting to see the release of the Brava Tweed line.
This yarn is smooth and easy to use. And the tweed line contains little flecks of light and dark on a heathery base.
Like many of WeCrochet/KnitPicks yarns, the Brava Tweed is also affordably priced.
