Well, my first FO ever - a few weeks ago - was a scarf for my DH. It was all garter stitch with 2 strands held together and done with Homespun (color: Fiesta). He wouldn't model it so I did! He loves this scarf and it was very easy to make.

I would like to try Silvers pattern, it looks so soft they way she did it.

But I also like the homespun one too, the way the colors show up.
Great two more ideas.

I am currently making A Scarf Askew from MagKnits:
http://magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/askew.htm . It's a 12-row stitch pattern that's easy but just varied enough to keep you paying attention.

It's based in stockinette and will curl, but I got it to straighten by steaming gently on the lowest setting I could get steam out of the iron with.

The Palindrome is the most masculine scarf I have seen. I just love it. It's so easy to knit. The big advantage of this scarf is that it is completely reversible. He should like that!!! Good luck choosing.

I am currently making the Besotted Scarf for my dad - http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm - its really not that hard if you just follow the pattern closely to make sure you do your cable crossings the right way each time, and I think it is looking really nice.

I am making the 10 foot long scarf for my son in law. I changed the yarn, because the one this suggests isn't available here but everyone who has seen me working on this has fallen in love with it.

I am using Bernat Super Stripes, it is currently 8 foot 9 inches long, and almost completed. I have used 3 skeins, with 28 sts CO on size 10 needles. Each skein is completing approx 3 foot 4 inches, so when I finish the last skein it will be 10 feet long.

This is very easy to knit.

I made a great scarf for my DBF using a k2p2 (or k4p4... I can't remember) rib. Cast on a multiple of 4 (or 8) stiches... 24 is good. I also made it a keyhole scarf so one end of it sticks through the hole. To do this, work about 8" in the ribbing, then work one row only halfway. Put the second half of the stitches on a stitch holder or waste yarn. Continue working the first half of your stiches in the ribbing for about 3-4 inches. place these on a stitch holder now, and cut the yarn (leaving an end long enough to join/weave in easily). No go back and start again with those stitches on the first stich holder and work until the two halves are even. Now, work in pattern across the full width of the scarf, off the needle from the half you've just finished working and then off the original half still left on the stitch marker.

Continue working in pattern until it "fits": When you put it on and stick the working end through (or over) the keyhole, it looks even. This scarf isn't very long because it doesn't have to wrap around and around your neck.

It's a combination of two of the scarves from Stich 'n Bitch.

I really like it. I made it using Wool-Ease Chunky in Chestnut.
