Introduction

Hi Everyone! I'm a newbie knitter and just discovered & joined this KAL. There are so many wonderful projects in Scarf Style, I am trying to decide which one to begin. I'm leaning towards Midwest Moonlight and Ruffles.

Do you think Midwest Moonlight is too "feminine" for a man, even if I use a masculine color yarn?

    Maybe it depends on the yarn and on the man - my understanding is that midwest moonlight is a lace pattern, so you may not want to present it to a man saying, "here, I made you a lace scarf!"

    Oh, you didn't ask, but I'd say that ruffles is DEFINITELY not a manly scarf. Unless you knit it out of fake fur, for a man who likes to go clubbing. Haha. :)

    Well, my honest opinion is that it might be a bit feminine. But it depends on the guy.

    Not a great scarf for a guy IMHO.

    Well, to be completely honest, none of the males in my life would wear Midwest Moonlight out in public no matter what color yarn I chose to knit it for them, but it really does depend on what kind of guy you're knitting it for. If it were me, I would show him the pattern and ask him if he would wear it.
