Finally finished my first project, a simple fisherman's rib scarf for my bf (that's him wearing it). Just in time for summer. :)

You could always seam them together into a sampler afghan; either horizontal or vertical strips; or in a log cabin pattern

Looks good. What's the color exactly. I like the color. You bf can be one of those people you see wearing some sort of piece of winter clothing all through the summer! :)

It's an olive - karabella's aurora 8 yarn.

I thought it was something other than black or dark gray. Greens... I love greens. They are my favorite. Nice job.

I like how you write "a simple fisherman's rib scarf."

It is simply elegant, and you must be pleased with how nicely it came out. I love fisherman's rib for a man's doesn't curl in on itself, it looks the same on both sides, it's classic looking. Excellent choice.

Simplicity can be extremly striking; and is certainly a classic.

I keep a scarf at the desk - sometimes the air conditioning gets going a bit too efficiently - and the scarf on the neck is just enough to compensate.

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog Very nice and it has a great form!

It oftentimes begins with "just a scarf", but isn't the sense of accomplishment a rush?!? Soon it will be a pair or socks, a sweater, a hat and so on and so on..... Great job and welcome.

What a great job for your first project. I, too, love making scarves - it's the best way for me to learn a new pattern and it also an excellent way to rid yourself of those onesie and twosie hanks from your stash. I can always find an appreciating home for a pretty scarf. I made one simalar to yours for my husband this past winter except it was a k1 pi rib but also in olive.
