Mariner's Scarf

Found this free one on Ravelry as I was looking for a new man scarf pattern.  It is published by the Seamen's Church Institute. They have other patterns as well, and welcome donated scarves,hats, etc for their mariners.  

This one uses about 300 yds and is a classic basket weave pattern.  I used 100% Peruvian Highland wool by Cascade Yarns.  This is some yarn I found at the Yarn Garden.  I'm on my second one now and am making it out of the same fiber, different color for a fella from Chicagoland.

Jimmy is the proud recipient of my first one -- at least he has his shirt on!

Gus got a brown one 

his is a silky merino mix

he actually wears it!!

this one is Mann's -- 100% Peruvian Highland Wool
he looks good in it --- even with the tag still on it!
