The never ending ball of black wool

In keeping with all things gifty, I am working on a scarf for my 16 year old nephew.  He is brother to Dani, whose scarf I am still plugging away on.  I looked for a pattern I thought would be "manly" enough for a teenage boy.  Fingers crossed, you never can tell with teenagers.  I however, absolutely love how this scarf is turning out.  The pattern is simple enough to do in front of the tv (not that I ever do, euhm), but looks quite nice knitted up.






Stats:
Pattern: Basketweave scarf
Wool: Sirdar Bonus Aran, 80% acrylic, 20% wool (I have a huge 400g ball of this, it is so soft).  I seem to be using a fair bit of it lately, yet the ball never seems to shrink.

  1. I love the giant 400g balls, they really do seem to last forever don't they?!

    The scarf looks good, it definitely looks manly enough to me :)

  5. I would think that as long as you block out the waviness of this scarf, the basketweave would be perfectly fine for a dude. :)

  8. I love the scarf! It is so hard to get good pictures of black yarn, so kudos on the picture.

  9. I'd say your nephew should like it. At that age I was very open-minded about fashion, as long as it all was black!

  10. The scarf looks great, real manly, and that colour is just right for a young man. I'm currently working through a 400g ball of yarn, so far a big slouchy hat and two thirds of a big scarf and still half a ball left!

  14. I love the pattern for the scarf - it kinda reminds me of the Hurley logo.

  15. Is black as hard to knit with in the evenings as is it to crochet with? I've been having quite a time working on "manly" gifts in the dark! :-)
