“mantastic” cowl, The Hemingway, made by Süsk & Banoo. Cowl pattern by the Purl Bee here http://www.littlethingsblogged.com/2013/08/puff-stitch-wrist-warmers.html.
How about a nice cozy neck-warmer for the men in your life? This neck warmer is appropriate for either sex, however, the front and back post double crochet stitches adds a very masculine element to this piece.
