I am searching for a nice men's scarf. Does anyone know of
a different pattern that is masculine.
There is the regular type of k2,p2....but, I was hoping to have a reversible or something different.
thank you in advance.:yay:

Hi,

I think Henry from Knitty is great men's scarf pattern. I hope to
make one some day when I'm done with the other 9 million
projects I want to make haha....

Great pattern....what type of yarn is comparable to .... Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4-ply [100% Merino Wool; }.....I have very limited yarn store selection. Would it be a sport weight?

A littler thinner than sport, though you could use it with needles a size or two larger. A fingering/sock/baby weight would be a close match if you want to use needles that small.

I prefer using larger knitting needles...if I do use sport.....should I go up 2 needles sizes?

I would think that will work out, try it and see how the pattern looks with it. You'll have a wider scarf, but you may be able to leave off one or two pattern repeats to make it the same width as the original.

Last year I did three scarves for myself (given that I'm a guy...not into women's clothing) I guess then they qualify as men's scarves.

I did:

1) The Seaman's Scarf (http://knitpicks.com/Seaman's+Scarf+Pattern_PD50545220.html) from Knitpicks using their Cadena yarn (no longer available). The color was a slate gray

2) A Danica entrelac scarf (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html) using Paton's SWS in an earthtone shade. The color changes matched up with the block changes well

3) A Rainy-Day scarf (http://yarndemon.googlepages.com/rainydayscarf) which is basically just a 2x2 ribbing that is 'offset' to produce a wavy ripple rib. I did that in Malabrigo in a midnight blue/purple colorway called Paris Nights or something like that.

All turned out very well and I've gotten compliments on all of them.

I'm basically a jeans/t-shirt/black leather bomber jacket type of guy and I'm comfortable wearing any of them. Hope it helps

I usually knit the: IRISH HIKING SCARF for the scarves that I knit for guys... they've all loved it so far.
I don't have the website right now... but, you can type in the name and do a search for it on the Internet.
