My boyfriend wants me to crochet him a scarf and I'm excited to do it... I want to make sure I make him one he'll wear a lot. It doesn't have to be entirely boring - he's not sucky guy like that, but it should be something appropriately simple... anyone have any suggestions?

well, what a lucky boy he is to have a girl like you who's willing to put in the time to make him sometime original! personally, i don't crochet (don't know how), but i do knit, and for boys, i always go for simple stripes, or perhaps a single small illusion knit image at the ends of the scarf, like his initials, or a symbol etc. hope that helps! and good luck with the scarf!:)

I'd suggest a dark color, maybe with a thick white stripe near each end.

Thanks for all the great ideas and input everyone!  Cheesy I'm looking at all the links and stuff now. Keep 'em coming if you have any more. All the FO's look great!

I just downloaded these last night, and boy are they hard! LOL! I'm still struggling with the 5th row on the first scarf I tried, but I'll get it one of these days. Huh

Oh, I am glad you liked them:)
I am working on one as well and yes, it is hard but it turns out so nice...
I think it's worth the effort and the time investment.

I did Etaria's Thick and Warm Hat a while ago (free pattern), it's also   great  for men,  it turned out great.

creating a man scarf is all about simplicity.  we want a rectangle of simple cheap yarn.  maybe a few colors here and there.  no fringe. no pompoms (though i do want to make some sometime).  no fancy patterns.  just simple boring crochet. 

 this (http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/7757/43/1600/scarf.jpg) took me a few hours to pop out.

just dc over and over and over again.  crocheted longways...

i'll post some more of my scarfs later when i get around to taking some more photos

Wow.. I just saw this thread! Spring I am glad you love the patterns...

Ginakra- How is it going?? If you need any help whatsoever email me and I can walk you through// Once you get the pattern down it sails by. My testers said the same thing. I do not want it to be a struggle so whatever I can help you with just email me... the finished scarves are absolutely stunning.. and i know i am biased... but  the guys i know wearing them around.. all their friends have been hounding me to make a scarf for them!

Whatever you do, make sure the yarn's soft.  Like, baby's butt soft.  Most men I know don't like to wear anything at all no matter how good it looks if it's the slightest bit itchy or uncomfortable in any way.  Especially not on soft neck skin.  Poor guys, they have no idea how to just suffer for fashion.
