Hi all, I just picked up knitting about a month ago, been lurking here for weeks and completely over-utilizing the search function to find that nearly every question I’ve ever had has already been answered at least twice!
My first “thing” that I made started out as a really basic scarf until I started totally hating the yarn about two feet into it so I made the rest of it with a bunch of different stitch patterns just to practice them. So my first real FO was a felted mini-bag, and as a reward for finally actually felting it and then lining it, I treated myself to a few skeins of Manos to make scarves for me and my bf (plus he asked me to make him something and I want it to be really luxurious). I decided to go with the “my so-called scarf” stitch pattern because it’s not completely basic but also doesn’t require an 18 row repeat or anything frightening like that.
Anyway, he totally left it up to my judgment about color and pattern, but now I’m really worried about if it’s masculine enough, and I was hoping for opinions before I get too far into it. Also, I’m really tempted to rip it out and start over with extra stitches on each side for a cleaner border. I know it doesn’t show very well in the photo, sorry.
Can you guys tell me if you think this is going to be okay?
