Instructions1/5/13 update: here is what I did. This isn't a "real" and tested pattern, just info on what I did. I hope this helps those who really wanted a pattern of some sort. I'm already assuming y'all know basic crochet stitches. (If not, there are tons of vids on YouTube.)

Bernat "Mosaic" yarn...2 skeins. Probably a "G" hook.
What was your inspiration?
A friend had a picture of a scarf from Pinterest, but it didn't link to any real directions. So I studied it, and saw it was just a matter of single and treble crochets, and drew up a "pattern" on a notepad. I had some lovely blue Mosaic yarn I hadn't known what to do with, so I used it, and it came out GORGEOUS. Look at those colors!! I have yet to block it, but perhaps tonight.
What are you most proud of?
Figuring out the pattern, even though it was pretty simple. Since then, I have learned that this series of stitches is called a "window pane" by some. So I put that in the title.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is easier than it looks. I'm going to try to write out the simple pattern and post that, too. Easy-peasy.
