Patons Rumor Yarn "Manly Scarf" pattern help
I've promised my brother over and over that I'd make him a scarf for Christmas. I found the Patons Rumor yarn on sale for about 3.00 ea in a color which he really liked. I like how the yarn is soft.

Anyways, I'm wondering, what's a good "manly" pattern? My brother wants the scarf wide, as well as long of course. He's in his early twenties. Right now he has a scarf which is about purl 5 or 6, knit 1 and repeats (from what he's described to me over the phone). He doesn't like that it curls.

I've looked at a few patterns, and he wants it pretty simple, but I'd like to do something more than just k2 p2, or something like that.

If anyone has made a scarf for the boyfriend/hubby/son, etc. I could use some help!

Also, the yarn is this:

12 sts - 17 rows = 4" (10 cm)
Suggested Knitting Needle
6.50 mm, US - 10.5
Suggested Crochet Hook
6.50 mm, US - K/10.5
Hand washable. Lay flat to dry
