I am a fairly beginner knitter: I can knit, purl, decrease, increase, probably a few other things. I want to knit my husband an infinity scarf along the lines of this scarf
in terms of size and length. Please help me figure out a really easy pattern so that I can do this without tears and drama. [more inside]

I don't want to find a good men's scarf. I want to find the best men's scarf. It should be non-wooly/scratchy, smooth to the touch, long enough and thick enough to be wrapped around the neck and draped over the front to create an insulation layer while waiting on cold train platforms and be in a "masculine" pattern/color that would suit most coats. It should also be durable and long lasting, I want a scarf you could wear without comment for 20 years and then be buried with it. Where is this scarf?

I would like to start wearing scarves with my outfits, but I feel totally lost. Please share your advice on how to buy, wear, tie, and style scarves! Additional challenges: I'm short, big-busted, tomboyish, and I have long hair which I usually wear down. [more inside]

Can you wear a scarf with a hooded jacket or sweatshirt without looking like a jerk?

I recently bought a new wool coat and upon examining at home, I found a small (~1/4"-diameter) button on the outside, under the collar, dead-center at the nape of the neck. What is this for? [more inside]

A friend gave me a beautiful hand-made knit scarf. The problem is that it's a stockinette stitch and its edges curl up uncomfortably rather than lying flat. As a non-knitter, are there any modifications that I can make to mitigate this curling? [more inside]

Long shot: I bought an Hermes scarf about 20 years ago that I want to sell. I'm trying to figure out its name. It is of a large open book.

Where can I find pashmina scarves in Montreal? Not the super-expensive ones, but the many-coloured, mass produced ones. I saw loads in Chinatown in Vancouver, and I am wondering where I can find similar ones here?

We're in the depths of an icy winter here in Kentucky and I've been wearing a keffiyeh like this
, which has helped a lot. When it's less cold/windy I pull the parts extending over my head and face down and it forms a pretty good torus of cloth around my neck. What other ways can I wear it? How do you do this

Knitters: I want to knit a scarf 60" long. I have 174 yards (two 87-yard skeins) of yarn. The information on the label says needle size US 8-10, and the little swatch thingy says a 10 x 10 swatch is 16 stitches by 22 rows. I am planning to just knit in garter stitch. Is there a way to figure out how many stitches I should cast on in order to make this yarn last until the scarf is 60" long? I don't care how wide it is.

Several weeks ago I bought a great orange cashmere scarf at Target for $25. It got stolen. Now I can't find the scarf at any of my local Target stores or on their website. Googling for orange cashmere scarves only turns up very expensive scarves. Are there any online merchants that might have this amazing scarf at such an affordable price?
