One of the coldest apartments that I ever lived in was in an otherwise delightful town called Beckenham in Kent, down in the South-East corner of England. The flat seemed pleasantly cool in the summer when I moved in, but when winter arrived in full force then it was seriously cold.
I rapidly learnt that good quality knitwear was essential to keep the winter chills at bay.
So, what better name for this new knitting pattern than the "Beckenham Scarf" ...
The pattern features a strongly graphical design which is just perfect for a man's scarf.
There are two versions: the grey scarf is worked in a soft worsted-weight merino wool, while the green version uses a super-warm chunky yarn.
The worsted weight scarf is 21.5cm/8.5 ins wide while the chunky one is a cozy 28cm/11 ins in width. Both are 185cm/72 ins long so can be draped or wrapped several times around the neck.
The patterning is completely reversible so it doesn't matter which side shows as the breezes start to blow.

Update 30 Oct 2013: ERRATA:
An error crept into the US version of the pattern dated v24Oct2013. The UK version is fine but in the US version, a "p1, k1," was missed out.
Row 7 should read: K4, p1, k1, (p3, k3, p3, k1) x2, p1, k1, p3, k3, p3, k5.
This is corrected in v30Oct2013-US. For further info please see my website Errata and Pattern Updates page.
