"Not I" said the Ellie.  If it was French I might be able to help out.  It's a pretty cool scarf though.

Oh Ive been drooling over that on flickr!

She has a few of other designs in english so maybe shell do it herself if you ask nicely?

And it dosnt look hard really, when you look at the pic where you see the details. It looks like she started with a k2 p3 and worked it 10 cm. Then switches to k1 p4 with the knit stick in the center of the previous purl stitches for around 4 cm. Then knit for maybe 2-3 cm. Then make the dragon spikes by knitting five and five stitches for 5-6 cm and bind off.

Woah, I didnt mean to write all that. Oh well. And Im just guessing the stitches and cm, but thats what it looks like to me Smiley
