Hello! I am a little frustrated right now and would like some input or, maybe, reassurance?
I am knitting my boyfriend a few scarves for his birthday in February. I asked him to find a pattern for a scarf he likes, but he has been picking out very simple ribbed patterns. He doesn't want cables, he wants ribbed. Ribbing bores me to death. Is there some way to spice it up some?
I've spent plenty of hours exploring scarf patterns myself and I haven't been able to find something that isn't lace that looks challenging (he wants a warm, masculine scarf). I have the most fun knitting when I'm learning something new! Does anyone have some pattern suggestions that were fun knits for them? Time intensive is a-okay.
