Not what I was going for

DSC_4879-1

But I love it! There are not a lot of male scarf wearers in my family so I debated taking it apart and trying to achieve something a bit more like my inspiration. But the votes were counted so I finished it. I was planning on listing it in the Etsy shop since I didn't have anyone to give it to.  My husband decided he would keep it...and wear it!

I kept telling him he didn't need to and that it wouldn't hurt my feelings if he didn't. I know he doesn't wear scarves. He insisted he liked it and he will wear it. We will see. It's sitting on the kitchen table this morning :)DSC_4885-1 

Remember this scarf ???

This was my inspiration....

I am still having trouble mimicking the pattern. Any helpful hints or thoughts about the scarf?

Christina has sent an email out to a friend...but I am being impatient.  I get completely obsessed over figuring something out when I can't. It is a very bad and annoying trait of mine. I am learning to deal with it :)

Happy Monday!

Do you knit? If so it looks like it would be a seed stitch pattern. knit and purl. try here: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches/seed.htm

It turned out great. I think Bret looks dashing in it.

It looks like the whole edge is knit with a seed stitch in the middle.
1 - knit one, then knit purl till edge, then knit knit
2 - knit two, then knit the purls and purl the knits, but end with knit knit. and repeat.

you just want to keep the first 2 and last 2 as always knits and then seed stitch in the middle...

That looks like a double seed stitch pattern . . . fairly easy to do. I'd be more than happy to show you!
