Usually I only end up crocheting things for myself and my friends, so I figured I should finally make something just for my boyfriend (even though I might borrow it  Grin). So, with the lack of any other ideas, I decided to go with a simple scarf, since he doesn't have any and mornings when he's awake here are already COLD.
I used Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in brown and gray (I threw away the paper from the skeins, so I don't remember the exact colors) and a size K-6.50MM hook and just started double crocheting. I didn't follow any pattern, I just kind of went with whatever came out. I think it turned out nicely, and he loves it, so I say it's a success.  Grin
Any C&C is appreciated! Thanks for looking, ya'll!

Pretty!  The grey looks like Heather to me.  I have some that's exactly like that.  Only just the regular yarn.  But that's just a cool scarf!  I need to learn the art of color changing for a scarf that I've been intending to make, but haven't yet. XD  But yeah, that's really cool. Smiley

Thanks so much you guys!
LordVader, yep, I'm pretty sure it was Heather. Color-changing is super simple once you get the hang of it. Lots of great tutorials online. =]
