I really like Henry from Knitty.com. I've been thinking about knitting it for my hubby.

Hey All,
Marria -Thanks for your swift response! That one looks really complicated to do (at a first glance). I almost thought that it is too difficult for me to do. But the stitches look okish (a bit of a push for me personally, but achieveable!)

Keep the links coming!!

I think the most challenging thing would be setting up the cast on because there are so many stitches. But the pattern itself seems fairly straightforward. You wouldn't think so from looking at the picture, though.

I am going to try this one next. It looks fairly easy, even for me. Marria, thanks for that link. It's a beautiful scarf and I may try that some time. I'm a little intimidated by the smaller needles. I haven't yet used anything below a US5.

I think simplicity is good for a man.. like some type of ribbing or stripes which can be all the way through or just on the ends.

And thought it might not have the same effect, you could start the pattern at the narrow edge and work it that way too.

Men's Scarf Patterns
Being a man who knits and crochets, I should qualify as an expert on this subject.

Well, I'll tell you anyway!

The patterns already listed are good. Here are a few that I have bookmarked. (Some are Crochet, most are Knit)

I like Knit Picks Columns Scarf, a free download pdf file. ( http://www.knitpicks.com/Columns+Sca...D50544220.html )

or Shifting Sands by Grumperina ( http://grumperina.com/knitblog/shiftingsands.htm )

or Crochet Guy's cap and scarf set follow wearables at Priscilla's Crochet ( http://www.priscillascrochet.net/freepatterns.html )

or Red Herring Scarf by Cogknition ( http://www.cogknition.org/uploads/pa...2009.01.11.pdf )
Note: This herringbone pattern worked across the width of the scarf in contrast to Henry's length-wise herringbone pattern.


or This Irish Hiking Scarf at Hello Yarn ( http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingscarfpf.htm ) Though please choose a better color than baby blue (Unless he is a Carolina fan)

Edits should be expected; I couldn't have gotten all those links right the first time.
