I knitted this for my boyfriend for his birthday. That was back in June, so unfortunately I don't remember the yarn used.  Embarrassed

The pattern is Grumperina's Shifting Sands, found here, http://www.grumperina.com/knitblog/shiftingsands.htm. This scarf has close to 3000 cable crosses in it, with 10 in every right side row. Also, it hasn't been blocked, as I had no time before I was due to see him.  Embarrassed

Folded up (please excuse the cat hair)

This sort of shows the stitch detail

Action shot! This is the boyfriend wearing his scarf. I also made the MacGyver shirt for the same birthday. It says "MacGyver thinks I'm rad".

Sorry for the slightly blurry images. Hope you like!  Smiley

I love the color and he looks soo happy.  Great job on the scarf and the shirt.  I used to love watching MacGyver so the shirt makes me lol.

Thankyou  Smiley

The colour is actually more of a bottle or pine green in real life, and is quite dark.

did you find that your boyfriend liked the scarf? 

what i mean is, is shifting sands an universal male scarf?  I'm currently making the scarf in a chunky yarn, and less repeats, it's for my BIL, and I'm not really sure he's even a scarf kind of guy... but i like making scarves, so I'm imposing it on him...

Aunt Suzi, it did take forever  Tongue I started well in advance (or so I thought) but ended up finishing it the night before I had to give it to him and almost gave my self RSI. Oops. It is a good pattern and the cable crosses are quite fun, I just left it until the last minute. It makes it quick when you do them without a cable needle.

Itscute, I just asked him and he said "yeah, it's awesome." He also said it's pretty masculine. I'm fairly sure he's not just saying that because I asked, he does genuinely like it  Tongue
