crochet chunky man scarf

I was terribly excited about this latest crochet adventure… working with beautifully soft, chunky wool to create something that Mr D-F really wanted for his birthday.  Over the past few months, I would flick through one of my crochet books, to find a helpful page and he would always remark ‘I really love the look of that scarf’ or sometimes ‘I bet that scarf would be warm’.  Needless to say, I quickly got the hint.

The other thing about this dreamy man-scarf is how long it took from start to finish. It only took me a couple of evenings by the fire and I was definitely not hooking at full speed.  The chunky wool was lovely to work with but it took a bit of effort as the scarf grew in size.

I was a bit disappointed that it was all over so quickly!

If you are interested in some of the facts:

I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky in four colours (2 x 50g balls of each colour), with a 6.5mm hook.

The pattern was from one of my favourite books of all: Crochet – The complete step-by-step guide, by DK.

I really hope that after all of his hinting, Mr D-F really loves it.

Have a great day!



      1. It’s fab – I got it as a post-Christmas present to myself! Plums and teals sound lovely… Might have to have a little dig through my stash to see what I can come up with 🙂 x
