Hey. So I have to knit this two color scarf for work, and I want to do something fun, but I've played around with it and nothing is working for me. I tried a slipstitch pattern, but the back looked awful, and so then I tried it in the round, and, wow, too much work for something that is not very pretty. I'm using orange and black in a feltable wool blend. Also, it should be moderately manly. Please help. Thank you.

Have you seen the Rainbow Scarf in Last Minute Knitted Gifts? That would look cool in your colors.

Weekend Knitting has a really nice two-color brioche stitch scarf.  Brioche stitch is really fun to do, and so pretty!  Orange and black would look great in that pattern.

You could always sew a fleece backing on your scarf...

Or for something unusual, just do literally half black, half orange.
