I'd really really like to make this scarf for a guy I like, but I'm not a long enough crocheter to be able to tell what kind of pattern this is. Or what hook to use, probably chunky or at least somewhat thick yarn...
Please please help! Thank you guys soooo much!!

I think it looks easy enough to figure out.  I'd say a worsted weight yarn should work well.  Maybe an I or J hook.  Then the rows all look the same.  I'd say ch  ( I can't tell if theres 3 or 4 dc on the sides) sooo..... I'll guess 4

Ch 40 (last ch 3 will be the first dc)  Turn.
Row 1:  Dc across.  (Should have 38 dc).
Row 2:  Ch 3, turn.  Dc in nx 3 sts. *FPDC in nx 3 sts. Dc in nx 6 sts.*  Repeat from * - * 2 more times.  FPDC in nx 3 sts. Dc in last 4 sts.

Rep Row 2 to desired length.

That sounds about right, right?? Cheesy

I enlarged the close up picture, and it looks like, from left to right...

3dc, 2post st, 6dc, 2post st, 6dc,2 post st, 6dc, 2 post st, 3dc . Chain 35 (?), and chain one at the end of the row before turning.

You're probably right about the yarn... thick, or 2strands of sport or dk weight held together. It looks like it might be about +/- 6 ft long.

About the hook size, I crochet and knit loosely, so I drop down at least one and sometimes two needle/ hook sizes to get the gauge/swatch size. Looks like the gauge is not critical here. You might try a 'J' hook or larger. You want a large hook and soft yarn to achieve the drape effect, yes ? Knitpicks.com has some beautiful natural fibers that will not break your wallet. Lion Brand 'Homespun' is a nice boucle yarn  

Let me know how this turns out.

I agree, but would you need to make a row 3 where instead of FPDC, you would do BPDC. So that the raised stitches always appear on the same side?

i.e Row 3:  Ch 3, turn.  Dc in nxt 3 sts. *BPDC in nx 3 sts. Dc in nx 6 sts.*  Repeat from * - * 2 more times.  BPDC in nxt 3 sts. Dc in last 4 sts.

Rep Row 2 and 3 to desired length.

I'm not convinced that it isn't 3 FPDC, 6BPDC repeated
Then 3 BPDC, 6FPDC repeated.

This all made sense until the four letter abbreviations.  Shocked

Could someone explain those? Cheesy

This is my opinion as well. You can sort of tell because of the sideways ridges that the 6bpdc/6fpdc have. Plus I've found that if you aren't alternating between front and back post stitches, but a post stitch than a normal, the heights are somewhat wonky.
