Pattern: One Row Handspun Scarf by the Yarn Harlot
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino worsted in Red Mahogany, 2 skeins
Needles: US 8
Notes: Finished at last! This is destined to be my one handknit Christmas present, and I’m only calling it that because it took so long to finish (but Marc gets it now – his neck is cold!) This pattern is perfect for showing off the subtle color changes in the semi-solid Malabrigo colorways. It’s easy to memorize and not too boring. It goes really quickly. I actually added two pattern repeats to this scarf to make it wider, and I knit it to be over 6 feet long… which is just what Marc requested, since he likes to double up his scarf when he wears it to walk to the bus stop. I will probably make another of these – I am debating between this pattern and Shifting Sands for my own Malabrigo scarf in Sunset. The 2 skeins were slightly different, but I didn’t care enough to alternate them, and I don’t think it shows unless you look where the 2nd skein is joined.
But the important part? He loves it!
Tomorrow: The one where I find out I’m allergic to cashmere (oh, the humanity!)

oh noooo!!!! allergic to cashmere?!!?
Gorgeous scarf! You have some awful allergies — what a bummer.
Love the finished scarf! Such a warm color for winter…
Very handsome scarf and nice color.
Et tu, cashmere?
Like alpaca wasn’t bad enough for you, huh?
I just picked up a gorgeous skein of Malabrigo, thinking of that scarf pattern. What a beautiful color you chose!
That is the perfect guy scarf! It looks hot with the beard and leather jacket.
alpaca I can see, but cashmere? aiyah!
at least you’re not allergic to plain old sheep wool.
lovely scarf, btw. and I vote for shifting sands for your scarf.
Wow, your allergies are tragic! What next?
Mmm… I guess there are plenty of wool yarns to keep you happy, though, right?
I love how Malabrigo looks in that simple stitch pattern. Such a great scarf!
Looks beautiful! I’m not sure if I can stand to look at this cashmere post, though. (On the bright side, it will be easier on your pocketbook, right?)
Looks fantastic! I just finished one of these myself, although not in Malabrigo (I wish!).
Nice scarf, a truly perfect mans scarf. I’ll remember this pattern for the future. Could be really nice for my husband I think!
What a shame about the cashmere but i guess it will definately help on your budget.
Love the scard – you have done a very good job on it.
ohhh, very nice I really like the stitch pattern…simple yet elegant enough for a man.
Very good work!
The scarf looks so warm and toasty. I love the bulkier yarns in this type of stitch pattern because no matter how simple, that stitches really stand out.
