Manly Scarf #7: Hunter Blue

Hot off the presses!

This is a 2-faced scarf! Quite nice, I think in that it presents a subtle as well as a slightly more dramatic side.

The stitch pattern is a 2-row repeat so easy-peasy to remember so it makes it a really quick knit!

  1. I presume kbl is the same as tbl? I hope.

    • Hi there! Yes, kbl is knit through back of loop — I probably should have placed the definitions before the pattern rather than after it. I’ll fix that right now. Thanks!

    • Thanks. After I posted the comment, I discovered kbl under the photo to the left. I thought the the other definitions were all there were. I wondered why the least common wasn’t defined. Duh! Should have looked more carefully.

    • No problem! Looking at it now, it is an unusual abbreviation. It’s been a while! lol Hope you enjoy the knit. If you’re on Ravelry, do let me know if you post pictures – I love to see pictures :)

    • Will do. My friend asked for grey with a touch of color. I’m not quite sure how to work that in, but I really like the pattern.

    • Oooo, that sounds interesting! Will look forward to those pics!
