I can't think of a crochet scarf pattern I have seen, but if you knit there is a super appropriate pattern in the book Weekend Knitting for a classy man with good taste. Sorry I can't help with the crochet....

i did one for my 50 yr old dad in just simple single crochet with pockets at the end...

like this: but with cool pockets:

unless u want a "classy" ribbed-textured effect, like this:

the yarn used in this one makes it a super thick "i live somewhere where it's 20 below" scarf, but u could sub it for normal yarn

hope this helps!!

personally i like something like this for men http://www.crochetme.com/issue_1/vertical_stripe_scarf.html i recently bought a scarf for my boyfriend and it's obviously knitted but it has vertical stripes in various shades of green. I bought it straight from a men's store, so there's nothing girly about it and looks very classy paired up with a suit.

thank for the replies so far. they are all great ideas. still looking though. i love the diagonal one but am afraid that it wouldn't come out as evenly as the one shown. and the gift has to be done by next week, so i need something that's a sure shot.

i don't know how "classy" my idea is but when my boyfriend wanted me to crochet a scarf for him i just did single crochet and used homespun black yarn with a little gray mixed in. a lot of people commented on how nice it looked just because of the slight mix of color made it look a lot more complicated. otherwise you could try a few rows of single and then a row of double and then single again, double...you get the idea. plus if you're in a hurry, its not so complicated that you aren't able to finish it in time.
