He wants to wear it like most of the guys do, like the photo, so it doesn't constantly need fussing with!
I really struggled with this one, because Isaac, like most boys, didn't want any foo foo stitching, fringe, nada. I ended up just making a simple scarf in a long round, using mostly double crochet (foundation row in a half double for strength) and made it about as tall as I am.
I posted a hooded scarf for Isaac's sister, Elise, a week or so ago. I started wee ones (Leila's) last night. Leila's with be a variation of Elise's, but no scarf. Hers I will design as a hat, or hood, with a collar and a button for a closure. She doesn't want any of "those things that fall down in the front ALL the time! (her emphasis!)
Thanks for taking a peak! I can't wait so get a picture of Isaac wearing his new scarf!
