I love that scarf pattern.  It's a lacy stitch mixed in w/ small cable repeats. 

Anyone have any ideas as to how to re-create it?

If you mean the one I'm thinking of then, the pattern is supposed to be for sale.

Can you post a pic? Try looking for the patterns you want in a stitch dictionary and just plug them into a straight panel?

From your written description, it might be similar to Annie Modesitt's free online pattern 'Alison's Scarf' which is stunning.

I'm sorry-- I can't post a photo right now- no scanner.. and camera is acting up.  I'll work on taking a photograph of the back of the magazine.  Thanks for the message and help... redwitch- if you do get to a store- just flip the issue over and it's the scarf on the back of the knitting magazine.  Cheesy

Pinkyswear- yes, it is a 'to purchase' pattern.. It's actually in an entire book and people (on this site) figure out purchased patterns all the time.  That's all I was asking- I know how to do cables.. and I just needed some help w/ the small lace panels portion.  It will be easy to do once the lace panel is figured out.  :

I have purchased Classic Elite patterns before--but, I don't live where I can look through 'issues' prior to purchase.. and sometimes I've bought entire books (ordered by mail) and find nothing or only one pattern in the expensive book that I like.

knitting..   YES!  That's it.. I know it's a small photo- but, isn't it a lovely scarf?  AND, sad to say.. that's the only thing in that whole book that I'd want to knit.  I all the other items 'in some form or another' in other knitting patterns/books/etc.

Thanks for linking to that site.  Cheesy

Oh that's pretty! Let me look through my Barbara Walker knitting stitch treasury and see if I can find anything similar for you. I'll look and post later tonight.

Found it! It took me a lot less time than I expected. lol. The stitch pattern is from A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker, page 210. It's called "Tilting Ladder Pattern." I'm not sure if I can post it here without violating copyright laws, so if you want more info, artteacher, just pm me.

I don't blame you for wanting to figure it out for yourself. I looked through the book preview and wasn't all that impressed. Although, that first toddler's cardi is adorable.

Artteacher - Would your library have the book so you could borrow it for that one pattern you like? I've heard other people say they've been able to borrow books ... (*sigh* no help for me here in Thailand, though)

Since it's just a booklet, really, probably it isn't at the library, but I'll bet the Barbara Walker book is.  However, there's no need to go to that much trouble.  The Breeze sock pattern from the Summer 07 Knitty uses the Tilting Ladder pattern. Cheesy
