Free Pattern: Manly Scarf

Almost two years ago (!) I knit up a scarf for my picky significant other. I posted about it on the blog and mentioned I would write up the pattern details.

Well, a bit of time passed and I forgot to post the pattern! I received a little poke the other day from a knitter inquiring - "did I ever write up this pattern?"

I did not! It totally slipped my mind.

And, since the original scarf I knitted was from 2 years ago, it has seen better days :)

So I decided to knit up a quick swatch to show you the stitch pattern detail.

Sample swatch was knit up in Swans Island Organic Merino Bulky in logwood.
