A cabled scarf is a great choice for adding a little texture to your winter outfits, and of course a cable is considered “manly” so you can knit a cabled scarf for a guy without him protesting that there’s too much decoration (usually).
This free pattern features a pair of staghorn cables and is worked with two strands of lightweight yarn held together, or you could use a thicker yarn to being with.
This would be a nice introduction to cables if you haven’t worked any or many before, and it produces a handsome scarf with little effort (scroll down on the page for the instructions in English).
