Etching Scarf

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern



I have a Men's Pattern for you today.

Funny Story, I finished the scarf and it just screamed, "I need tassels!" I asked my husband, "Is this scarf still manly if I add tassels?" He gave an automatic "no." "Will you still model it for me if it has tassels?" From the pictures below you will see that the answer is yes. If your husband is like mine you can leave the tassels off and it will still look fetching. Or you can leave them on for yourself and pick one of the other great colors in the Scarfie yarn line.


The whole time I was making this scarf it made me think about when I was in art class and learning about shading with a pencil. All those etched lines across a paper to make your silhouettes stand out. For this drawing  scarf the shading is created with mitered squares and then they are shaded in with entrelac triangles. This scarf works up fast. I as able to finish it in 2 nights. Then there was another 2 nights for blocking. This is a very do-able project for a last minute Christmas gift.

    1. All the squares are made together and then you go back and add the triangles.
