Looking for a simple scarf to make as a gift? I have just the pattern for you! This is the Embraceable Cowl pattern from Phydeaux Designs. I made a 56-inch length scarf version with 10mm needles and two balls of Debbie Bliss Roma in Blaze. This wool comes in some fantastically intense colours. I’m very tempted by the Hot Pink.
This is a super-fast and easy make. It took one weekend to knit the below and I wasn’t even applying myself:
I wanted a scarf pattern that a man would be happy to wear. I think this ticks that box. I’m not sure every bloke would embrace my chosen colour, but I’m working on the assumption that if Ella’s dog walker doesn’t like this shade, he’ll have someone he can share the knitting love with.
The good news is that I bought four balls of this wool, so I can make a second scarf in plenty of time for Christmas. If Ella will let me give the next one away.
Are you planning to make any Christmas gifts this year?
