I finally finished the Seaman's Scarf. I guess it's good enough to give to my manly cousin as a gift, along with a matching headband, but I won't knit with it again. The yarn is too bulky. I prefer something a little finer. The pattern was written out in a previous post.
The yarn is Nashua Handknits "Creative Focus Chunky". It's 75% Wool and 25% Alpaca, and knits up at 3 sts to the inch on US 10.5 needles. The picture shows the scarf still a little damp after washing. I was distressed to see some blue color in the wash and rinse water, so I guess there is some dye left in the yarn after processing. It wasn't expensive yarn ($7.99 US per skein at my local yarn shop). I guess you get what you pay for.
As you can see from the picture below, the yarn is fuzzy and just a little prickly.
