Done in Red Heart Soft Yarns in Seafoam colorway. Used an I hook because I didn't have an H, gotta go get one. I also messed up and read the pattern wrong and did double crochet instead of treble crochet throughout the whole thing. It came out just fine though.
Pattern from Ravelry....http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aran-scarf



Hope you like! It was easy, I did it in an afternoon.

That is very beautiful! I especially love the cabling effect.  I usually (or used to) knit but have been addicted to crochet for a few months now.  Anyway, good job on the scarf!  Smiley

You did a beautiful job.  I like yours better than the original, the double crochet works really well.  It's probably warmer, too!

I like your version of it better, too.  Did you just keep repeating the pattern since you did DC instead of triple crochet until it was a length you liked? 

(I also just remembered I had been invited to Ravelry a month ago and didn't set my account! Eek! I just copied the pattern!  Smiley )

Spurtiic-
Yes, I just kept going with the cable pattern until it was long enough. Then I ended it according to the pattern.

Sorry I didn't answer sooner. I thought I did. The mess from Christmas in my house has obviously drained my brain cells. Tongue

Can the pattern be found somewhere else? I don't have a Raverly account. Thanks.
