I made the Irish Hiking Scarf a few months ago. I didn't have any idea who I was going to make it for, but my husband saw me knitting it and asked for it. Now THAT is a first. It turned out great...made with Wool of the Andes.

Masculine look
If you knit 4 purl 4 then alternate you get a basket patter. Make as thick or thin as you like. Looks very masculine. Very textured looking. I used Blue sky's browntweed bulky alpaca/wool.

How about knitting a long narrow tube on circs, put 2 thin CC stripes toward each end, then sew up the ends with the CC in like a quilting st?

Kelly K,

I don't get this. How do you put in the CC? Also, how do you sew up the ends like a quilting st? This sounds like a great simple pattern....one even I could manage with a little more direction.

Does it not make the scarf very bulky? I guess you've have to use a fine yarn.

Help!
Kathie

When you change colors, you just start knitting with the new color....I know that feels strange when you are a new knitter, but it really does work.

This WOULD make a very WARM scarf. Men are all into "utility", so I thought it would be a good idea. You are right, though....If you used a finer gauge yarn, it would be less so.

As for quilt st-ing the edge....I cant find a good pic of what that looks like. I know Ive seen a link around here somewhere of edge-stitching pictures...maybe someone will share.

But, basically, you can flatten and sew up the ends however you like. You could even kitchener st them or do a 3-needle bind-off (Amy has videos) if you wanted a more invisible finished edge.
