Help finding a scarf pattern for a man
I've searched and can't find a pattern I like yet for a man's scarf . I'll be doing it in sport weight varigated ( sp) yarn . I would love to find something that will show off the color changes if possible .

Any Ideas ?

BTW this is my first post ( besides the one when I joined and introduced myself ) but I love reading the forum !

I like the pattern from Knit picks. It looks like you could even use Silvers Palindrome pattern and adapt it to the Seaman's scarf. Hmmmm . . . I may have to do that one for my husband.

Thanks Sue . I like the Fishermans scarf pattern too . I'm going to swatch it and see if holding two strands of sport weight yarn together will work . I've " got" to use this particular yarn as it's what the person I'm knitting it for picked out .

I've been looking for good man scarves as well.

Here's one...

The My So Called Scarf would work as well I think

I like the shifting sands scarf by Grumperina:

I like the Miranda scarf from the smariek knits blog even more:

Very masculine, I think, despite the name.

Also, I think that the farrow rib makes a very interesting scarf, a little more oomph than your usual ribbing, and good for men.

Here is a link to a photo of the farrow rib, it it a really terrible picture but I can't find where I put the better ones. Done in Knitpicks Elegance in Coal.
