I've got a slightly different gifting problem from tamagochi's posted at "Manly knitting gifts".    I WISH my boyfriend was of the britprof sweatervest type, but instead he's a Dolce&Gabbana-wearing fiend.  Yes, more fashionable than me, I can assure you.  It's a new boyfriend, and I'm still getting used to that idea.

I want to knit him a scarf for christmas, though.  I'm thinking to splurge on some cashmere, and knit something grey and neutral, but that you might still see on a runway in Milan perhaps.  Cables are out.  Moss stitch is too rugged-looking, i think.  Has anybody seen a pattern lately that fits that description?  Lurking fashionistas, I beg your advice!

I saw a man's scarf in a photo of one of the London Fashion Week shows (I think) that was basically a giant, grey, double-ended sock. It had proper heels and everything. Would he like that, or would it be too quirky? If I can fnd a pic, I'll post it.

Wait a minute, where's me jumper? On Ravelry of course.

what about a basketweave stitch or 'my so called scarf' (don't have the link...but if you google it you can find the pattern)

i like the exchequered scarf on knitty.com.  very mod and you could do it in muted colors.  it's double knit, so it's reversible!

thanks guys! i've never seen my-so-called-scarf before... that stitch looks great.  i need to play around with the yarn and see what works best. 

the sock-end scarf idea isn't very him, but it is SO very me.  new scarf for me!  yea!
