Tried my first guy scarf. Loved the pattern! If I do another, I'd probably only cast on 14 stitches instead of 20. This one goes to a very special young man -- who I hope will critique it for me for future info!

Continue in pattern until scarf is 58" or to desired length. BO and weave in loose ends.
Later I tried a more narrow version. I dropped about 6 stitches. Looks good and manly, but the squares don't pop like they did in the first one. Don't know if that's a stitch number thing, or a fluke.
11-21-13: I tried it a 3rd time and cast on 16 stitches. Needs to be a multiple of 4 stitches. Looks great to me and the pattern shows nicely.
