That is the question and I am going to enlist the help of all readers out there to weigh in on this topic. I have just finished the scarf to a hat and scarf set for a male friend of my brothers. Well I say 'finished' but I am using the term loosely. The pattern calls for fringe.
Here is my dilemma, the scarf is 55" long, I have never met the person who it will be gifted to (doing this as a favor to my brother) and my brother works different hours than I do. It looks a little plain. Would fringe make it flamboyant? Here is a picture of it...
I have asked my husband who first of all wouldn't be caught wearing a scarf in the first place and has made it very clear he definitely wouldn't wear one with fringe, when I asked his opinion. Is he an accurate representation of all men or just the ones from our neck of the woods?
So I am asking you all, knitters, readers, husband of previously typed. I would like to get this out in the mail by the end of the month so please leave a comment by say Saturday if you care to assist me with this? I look forward to reading any and all comments! Really!
In the meantime I am casting on the hat. No questions on the hat because no fringe there!
