I just finished this (it's a Christmas present). I was trying to:
1) use a really thick, warm yarn - the future owner lives in a cold climate
2) finish this quickly
3) create something somewhat stylish and dressy
4) find an interesting stitch - I hate working row after row of single crochet
5) avoid the common problem of the scarf being super bulky (hence uncomfortable) around the neck
So there you have it. I'm pleased with the results. As intended, it's very comfortable to wear - the mesh allows it to clump together without getting too stiff.
I found this similar version in the MOMA store catalog a few days ago. Funny.
