So like in my knitting thread:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366321 i decided the men folk I'm gifting can have scarves.  I was going to knit them all, but I'm much quicker at crochet, so decided a few crochet ones would be good too. 

Here's the result.  It's just a simple ribbed scarf that I made a decorative row down the middle using triple crochet Smiley







I think the first picture shows the colour more accurately.  I used two strands of yarn.  One aran weight grey and one slightly less than DK weight blue/grey Smiley
The effect is really nice, the camera doesn't capture it too well Smiley

Very nice! I could definitely see some of my guy friends wearing this. Maybe I'll try my hand at a similar one. Thanks for sharing! Smiley

I really like the look of this pattern even if the camera didn't do it justice.

Really nice! I'm going to try for this for a present as well. How much yarn would you say you used?

Hey, I'm not sure what it would be in terminology for US, but in UK terms I used half a big ball of Aran weight (worsted) yarn and just over 1 average sized double knitting yarn ball. Oh and I used a 7 mm hook Smiley hope that helps. You could probably use less, I just made the scarf a bit too long tobegin with but Cba undoing it :p
