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


Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 140 yards/50g):

  • Version A or B: 2 skeins MC, 2 skeins CC1, 1 skein CC2
  • Version A photographed in Soot (MC), Fossil (CC1), and Hayloft (CC2)
  • Version B photographed in Fossil (MC), Soot (CC1), and Hayloft (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.
