Crochet DROPS scarf

I needed a break from the baby blanket, which is coming along very nicely.

I saw this DROPS pattern on Vickie Howell's blog.  I thought is was really cute and thought I'd give it a shot.  The pattern says to use a double stand, I'm not doing that... I'm just using a red boucle that I think is red heart... not sure.  I can't afford the alpaca that the pattern calls for...  So, far I think mine looks pretty good!!!  The pattern is kind of weird at first, but then picks up fast.  Oh.. and I've never crocheted from a diagram before, we talked about that over Christmas.  So, I was a little intimidated at first, but once I learned the symbols, I think I actually like it better!  I'll take pics when I'm further along.

Woah this drops scarf is SO nice! (I found your blog through a google of "newsboy pattern". When I went to the pattern site though it looked SO complicated! Any tricks or explanations you can offer for those diagram things?
thanks so much!
(you can email me at or my google email if you have time to toss me some tips!)
