A few of you have asked for a how to, which I would be happy to share to the best of my ability: I don't have a pattern because I just made it up as I went along, but I can tell you sort of how I did it. It is double crochet from end to end. I decided to make the horizontal lines in the numbers three stitches thick and the vertical lines two stitches thick. This accounts for how the stitch is longer than it is wide.I started with a few rows of blue and left some blue on the top and bottom of each number to frame them like a calculator screen. After introducing the white yarn I didn't tie off either color until the end. When it is supposed to be white, I just lay the blue yarn on top of the previous row and stitch right over it, and then when I switch back to blue I crochet over the white. You can find this technique in The Happy Hooker book. This makes for fewer weaving in ends later. : )  You just have to keep track of where you are in each number and use the right colors in the right places. Then I used the white and just single crocheted around the outside for a border, which made it feel a little more finished. Hope this helps!

mellifluousfondue: I love your scarf!

For all those who don't own The Happy Hooker book (yet ;-)): I have found very good instructions on tapestry crochet (as far as I know this is another name for double crochet): Tapestry crochet for right-handers and - what I have never seen before and think, is a very good service: Tapestry crochet for left-handers
I tried this tapestry crochet once on a kind of spiral bowl (you can see a close up photo here) and I find it an interesting technique, because the fabric gets thicker than with 'normal' crochet.
The ideal technique for a scarf ;-))
