A la mode Boa Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern

Free Crochet Pattern for a Woman's Boa Scarf

I love the grape color used in this scarf and was planning to make a matching hat but before I could grab a couple of more skeins, this color was discontinued ! Well, I am glad I could at least finish the scarf after I frogged a couple of my other projects.  I see the stitch on this as a kind of faux loopy stitch that is way easier to work than the original.  I can easily visualize  this  stitch pattern on a throw pillow. If you would make this scarf what colors do you think  it would  look good in? 

 The scarf is quick to work up and you need to know only  the basic crochet stitches. Pattern uses an I (5.5 mm) hook and worsted weight (size 4 medium yarn) or Aran in UK.  I first made this scarf last winter but never found the time to publish the pattern. So here is another one of my UFOs finally seeing the light of the day! For those of you who are not familiar with the crochet jargon UFO  didn't mean that I tossed  it flying out of the window. It means an unfinished object in crochet. Frogging? It means ripping off your work. The usage came from the fact that "rip it, rip it" sounds like a frog's call. Crochet sure is a fascinating craft, isn't it?
