It looks a bit like My So Called Scarf?

Searching for the pattern on Google also turned up this Youtube video which shows you how to work the stitch; I've often looked at the MSCS pattern but couldn't visualise how it would be done so you've done me a big favour! Cheesy

HTH, Jane.

To me that looks like a basketweave stitch that I have done before.  If I remember right, you need to loosen your tension when you knit into the back of the second stitch, so you can have enough play to knit into the front of the first stitch on odd rows of the pattern.

cast on even number of stitches
row 1:  knit into back of second stitch (do not remove from needle), knit into front of first stitch, remove both stitches from needle
row 2:  P1, *purl the second stitch (do not remove from needle), purl the first stitch, remove both stitches from needle*; repeat from * to *, end P1
repeat rows 1 & 2 for basketweave pattern

yeah, it's basically doing a cable with just 2 stitches. On one row, you want to cross the second stitch IN FRONT OF the first stitch (right cross) and on the next row you want to cross the second stitch BEHIND the first stitch (left cross).

Row 1 that OnThinIce will give you the right cross, I don't have any knitting with me to see how to make the left cross.

(Ummm, I haven't had any caffeine yet, so I might have the left & right backwards Undecided , but that's the idea of the stitch)

The stitch is called a herringbone stitch.  I made a scarf last year with that pattern



I had some trouble with the pattern so I googled it when I was making it....

HOpe that helps!

ETA:  Oops!  I see you've already got the help you need!

okay, today i saw the ribbed hat, but instead purls between knits it has a pattern like that. and it costs 100$. in croatia. that's like 125 loafs of bread here (added for comparison:)) i wasn't really planning to make a new hat, but since i saw this one... Smiley)

I crocheted (poorly) the little strands you see linking the pompoms to the scarf.  I tied (*gasp*) the ends through the pompom with a knot, and cut the ends to to match the length of the pom pom fuzz.  Heh.
