I've been browsing patterns for a long while now looking for a pattern for a scarf that I can make for my boyfriend (age 18) and I haven't been very impressed with the selection (I often find I have to disagree with other knitters' definitions of "manly"...) Can anyone reccomend a good pattern for me? I want to use two colors, probably just in stripes or checkers, but scarves that don't look the same on both sides are a pet peeve of mine... help?

I can't give you much in the way of a pattern, other than to suggest you just create your own with the colors you want and some knitters graph paper. Scarves are fairly easy to make patterns for b/c they're just long rectangles. Or try Knitty.com

But, I can help with the scarf looking the same on both sides. Look into double knitting. Both sides will look like stockinette, and you knit them both at the same time on the same needles. It's technically an advanced technique, but as far as I'm concerned, nothing's to advanced if you put your mind to it.

Good luck!

"Yea, so?"
"I don't know, just seems a little out of the ordinary"

I've made this one twice. One for me, and one for the Mrs.  The finished product has an almost chain mail look to it.  Pretty neat stuff.


I've also really liked this pattern.  Simple, I think, is the name of the game when it comes to scarves for men.
