Nothing says “manly” more than bold graphic stripes. Julie delivers here with two very cool and sexy stripe combinations. Worked in a reversible Fisherman’s Rib stitch pattern (some call it English Rib, some Brioche, we think of it as Fisherman’s Rib), you can easily knit up one of these in a weekend for gift-giving or for your own scarf collection.
Worsted weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts:
- Version A: 280 yards of MC, 165 yards of CC1, 15 yards of CC2
- Version B: 250 yards of MC, 200 yards of CC1, 10 yards of CC2
- 14 stitches and 44 rows = 4″ in Brioche Stitch Ribbing with Size A needle(s), after blocking
Note that each elongated stitch in a column of knit stitches represents two rows: when you count these it will appear that 22 rows = 4″
- Size A (for Main Fabric): One pair of straight needles or a 24″ (or longer) circular needle* in size needed to obtain gauge. Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)
- Size B (for Cast On and edge rows only): One pair of straight needles or a 24″ (or longer) circular needle* two sizes larger than Size A. Suggested Size: 5½ mm (US 9)
*Knitter’s preferred style may be used.
