    I knitted two scarves for a couple guy friends in plain garter stitch (one in a multi-coloured wool of red and black and one in a cobalt blue) and they loved it. They wear it every winter. Don’t underestimate the power of the knitted article! 🙂

    I think it depends on the man. My Fiance wouldn’t wear a knitted scarf, but a few of his friends wear them all the time!

    First of all – that’s sooo cool that you can do that as your favors. Fiance has a knit scarf that we got in Ireland – I think as long as you remove the girly-ness of it you should be all good.

    I hate to say it but most men I know also do not wear scarves.

    I like the idea of the scarves and I think that quite a few of the guys will wear them. Just be aware of the color choices and no hanging tassels or balls.

    No matter what you do, not every single guest is going to go ga-ga over the favors. We’re giving out homemade jam, and I’m sure some people don’t like jam…oh well! What’s nice about your scarf idea is that its personal and handmade – so even if a few people don’t wear theirs, I’m sure they’ll appreciate the time you put into them. And I agree with other posters that more men will wear scarves than you might expect…

    i agree with @farmersdaughter, no matter what type of favor you do, some guest is not going to like it, use it, eat it (whatever).. i really like your scarf idea and, as a guest, would appreciate the thought and time you put into a favor like that. I know my Fiance would not wear it personally, but i know my BIL would love something like that!

    Are you going to make pink scarves for the girls and blue scarves for the guys or are you going to make them unisex?

    Here’s the thing with almost any kind of favor…most men don’t take them anyway! I’d do exactly what you’re doing/planning. Many times a couple will take just one,or the women will take both. If you do more unisex colors,and people realize there is one for each,the women will take them. Don’t worry. I think its a wonderful,heartfelt gift!

    I know some guys that wear scarves.  My Fiance doesn’t, but then again, he refuses to wear a jacket in the winter!!

    I think it’s a really nice idea, and more than enough for a favor.  I think it’s something that people will remember, especially since you made them!

    I think that’s a great favor. I would definitely appreciate getting a handmade gift like that if I were a guest. My Fiance does wear scarves (it is super cold where we live   {-40 at times} and he walks to school/his internship), so he would also appreciate a scarf.
