A dear friend of mine wants a scarf for christmas, and I came across this one and know she would love it. The problem, of course, is that it's crazy expensive and also no longer available. Does anyone know the stitch pattern for this one?

http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446128056&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=282574491928855&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474395222441&bmUID=1128622284800&DCLKSLOT=3

It looks like a long line of knotted loops that are gathered with crochet into the wavy pattern. I think I can figure out the crochet part, but does anyone have an idea about the knotted loops?

It looks like it has been knit to me, but you might be able to recreate the look with one row of (dc, ch) in between each row of shells

The knots in the middle of the loops make me think it's not knitting, though I may be able to try and work something out that way. I wonder - could it be hairpin lace? Maybe I could do something with pearl tatting. Hmm. If I figure it out, I'll post how Smiley

Yup, definitely hairpin lace. Here's a bit on making your own frame:

And using it once you've got it:

And a stole very similar to this scarf!

I don't know about the hairpin lace.  It looks more like jiffy (broomstick) lace to me.  Here's a link with a couple pictures of it and a few how-to's

I agree with you, it is definately hairpin crochet. The strips are in the standard double crochet (or single crochet in the US) pattern shown on your second link, and the joining seems to be some kind of fan shaped grouping, with twisted loops. This page might help a bit, but I can't find instructions on the kind of thing I am thinking of on the net- sorry, I will pm you.

Apparently, you can make your own hairpin lace loom out of bamboo skewers and hot glue sticks.
