I could probably figure it out, but I'd need a better (or at least bigger) picture.  Can you post a link?
And what precisely is it about this cable that you like?

The Harmony Guides have a bunch of cable patterns, you might be able to find something similar in one of them or at least figure out how to figure it out by looking through it.

It looks like it's just a 4 strand braid.  I'll work it out over the weekend and post.

It's kind of like shadow cable, in the way that it subsides into the fabric. One and a half repeats of the following:

12 stitch repeat, plus 2 selvage stitches:

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: K1 *C6F, K6; repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 4: Purl
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Purl
Row 7: K1, *K6, C6B; repeat from * to last stitch, k1

this creates kind of softer undulations. I'm not sure how you'd get them to be so crisply angled. Maybe Melidomi will have some ideas for this.

Well, the 4 cable braid goes like this:
Row 1:p2, k2,k4f,k2,p2
Row2: k2,p8,k2
Row3: p2,c4b,c4b,p2
Row 4: k2,p8,k2

you'd probably get the softer, fade in and out effect if you threw in
extra odd row: p2, k8, p2
extra even row: k2, p8, k2
after rows 1 and 3.
