Winter is taking over and it’s getting colder from day to day, so you should be fully equipped with warm cloth for this type of weather. We mostly knit nice things for women and babies, and ignore our lovely men. Now is the time to change the situation a bit and a warm knit scarf for men that makes a set together with slouchy ribbed knit hat for men. I hope this winter ammunition will be used and appreciated by your second half. Enjoy knitting this set and have a wonderful time before Christmas holidays!

Fisherman’s rib knit scarf pattern for men:
For the men’s knit scarf I have used the same type of yarn and needle size.
I believe that men like something simple and cozy at the same type. For knitting the scarf I have chosen English Rib Stitch or also known as Fisherman’s rib.
Cast on 32 stitches.
Row 1: selvage stitch (slip the first stitch), *k1, yo, slip 1 st as if purled, repeat from * till the last stitch, selvage st (purl);
Row 2: selvage st , *k next st and yo together, yo, slip 1 st as if purled repeat from* till the last stitch, selvage st.
Repeat Row 2 until your scarf measures desired length. Bind off loosely.
Is the needle size correct for this pattern? I looked up the yarn and the recommended needle size for it is 6-6.5mm which is substantially larger, the needle seems quite small and will make everything quite tight on the needles.
Hi, yes, my needles were a bit small. Please, feel free to use large needles.
Thank you I will knit this for my son
For knitting the hat and scarf, I know I will need two lengths of circular needles
What is the length needed for the hat?
What is the length needed for the scarf?
As it’s circular that I’m working with
I await your reply
You can use one length 16” circular needles for both: scarf and hat. You can also use longer circular needles but then you have to use magic loop technique. I hope it helps.
