|Ready for the wearer!|
After making those scarves for my nieces, my husband requested that I make him one too. Considering all the running around he did with me while we bought materials and approved/rejected designs for the earlier scarves, I decided he ought to be rewarded. The fact that we were currently going through a cold wave also helped things in his favour.
He ideally wanted a simple single crochet scarf (yes, he sort of knows the difference!), but I wanted to experiment.
After a lot of searching I settled on the Paul’s “Sweet Guy” Scarf at Wolfcrochet!
I couldn’t really follow the pattern to a T as after chaining the prescribed number, it was only 2 feet long (all because shops here do not follow the weight method for defining yarn!). Instead, I kept adding chains till it was the desired length and then went on to row 2.

|It is Long!|
My scarf had lesser rows as he didn’t want something too wide.
After a lot of setbacks – we ran out of colour, the shop didn’t stock that type of yarn anymore, etc – I finally finished it about 2 weeks later. The final length was about 5ft (152cm) and width about 8″ (~21cm).
I also added a border along the breadth in the last colour, more so to cover my mistakes than anything else! 🙂
Needless to say he loved it! Though, he hasn’t worn it as yet, as it is back to being hot here. Hopefully he’ll use it at our upcoming trip.
