Are any of you interested in helping me test drive a pattern? I know that most of you who read this blog have a significant other of the male persuasion, or at least a male in your life. I've come up with a design for a scarf pattern for a man, worked in the seaman's style.
Without giving too much away, I'm finding that it's working up into a nice, masculine looking scarf that any man would be happy to receive on his special day (or any special day). I think.
If you're interested, email me at stringsnthings at shaw dot ca (edited to change from dot com to dot ca) and I'll send you a copy of the pattern in Word format (for now, so that it's easier to make changes if necessary). I'd post a picture of the stitch, but that certain someone might see it.
Oh, the yarn I'm using is a 4-ply yarn that calls for 4.0 mm needles. Any DK weight yarn would work, especially since gauge isn't crucial on a scarf.
