FO: Herringbone Scarf

Christmas is quickly approaching, and I'm trying to get my Christmas knitting done early so that I don't have a massive day-before-Christmas-knitting panic. Exhibit A: A scarf for my grandfather.

Pattern: Night on the Town (ravelry link) (non-ravelry link)

Yarn: Patons Angora Bamboo

Colorway: Urban Gray

Mods: I didn't want it to be quite as wide as the pattern called for, so I only cast on 26 stitches.

The Verdict: I wanted something warm, soft, and fashionable. I also wanted something a little more complicated than seed stitch, but still masculine enough to give to a man. This scarf totally fits the bill. It's so incredibly soft and warm, perfect to keep Grandpa warm on cold days. I love it, and I know that he is going to love it too. I just wish I didn't have to wait until Christmas to give it to him!


  1. That is a wonderful pattern... definitely something I would consider for my guy

  2. I'm glad you like it! It's a great stitch pattern- looks complicated, but it's really not!
