View Full Version : Which pattern?

Ok... so I have the yarn. Which pattern looks more... professional? Nicer?

This (http://knitterlythings.com/blog/?p=181)... or the next to the last (http://www.houghtonavenue.com/knitted-scarf-patterns.html) on the bottom?

EDIT - And, oh heck, how many stitches should I make it, width-wise? Medium weight, size 9 needles.

How many stitches depends on what width you want, and how many sts/inch you get with size 9 needles on the yarn you want to use. As to which pattern... do you want even stripes or just a few thin ones....

Well, I just didnt know which one of those two looked nicer for a guy...

As for the other stuff, I can kinda adjust.

I vote for the first one! I think it is a little classier!
you might just have to cast on and do a few rows and see how you like it! I'm not experienced enough to tell you ie: how many stitchs it takes with worsted weight yarn to make a 4 inch scarf?

If it's a scarf for a guy, you'd want to make it wider than 4", 6 or 7 more likely.

I love both scarves, but if I had to choose I think I'd choose the 2nd one with the strips only on the ends.

I prefer the second one--think simple is better for a guy.
