This HAS to be my favourite technique I have come across lately. Its from a stitch pattern in Sasha Kagan's Crochet Inspirations called Woven Tweed. This is the second scarf I have made like this and they turn out really nicely! I just love the pattern. It's a simple DC mesh stitch that then has strands of yarn woven through it to finish. This is a bicolor one I made for the bf's stepdad in his favourite Ohio University colours.
Wool-Ease yarn, Size I-hook


Here in progress:


And finished:

Very nice!  My Mom made an afghan using a similar technique and I don't know how you guys have the patience for it.
