I want to knit a scarf for my BF and some other guy friends..but I am clueless as to which yarns would be manly enough and what patterns would be best.
(Or is a plain ol' stockinette stitch best?)

My guy says he doesn't like scarves because they are scratchy and tickle his neck, but I think if I can find the perfect yarn, I think he'll change his mind. If not, I'll keep the scarf or give it away!

The other guy I have in mind isn't so picky. LOL

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly apprecited!

(I'm posting this on another board in hopes of many answers.
I'll definitely be back to both to share my finds!)

Hey Heather!


I think the yarn is the most important thing to consider when making a man's scarf.

Thanks, Heather!

I have been looking for chunkier yarns..and I think I have an idea what I will use..


Thanks for the links! I especially love the last one! Like you said, there is TONS of patterns there!

I need to start learning different stitches!

I started doing a ribbed scarf.. and didn't like the way it looked..so I've ripped it out (twice) and now I'm just knitting a regular scarf.

I have 5-7 inches so far, 25 stitches wide.

Below is a link to the yarn I am using:

That's too bad you had to rip some out, but you know what looks best :)


I love the yarn color!
