Hmmm  . . . it's hard to tell from the picture; it *kinda* looks like just big giant regular stockinette, on giant needles, with doubled/quadrupled yarn.

BUT it also could be one of my favorite and most easiest stitches -- [yo, K2tog], repeat.
(I've also done it the other way, I think: K2tog, yo)

Also, I think results are different depending on whether you start with an odd vs. even number of stitches cast on.

Experiment with it, tho -- it has easy but pretty results, and it's also a great way to make yarn stretch farther, project-wise; it's so airy that you can get a longer scarf out of the same amount of yarn.

Hope that helped -- good luck! ;o)

That's definitely super super bulky knit on large needles, but if you have a medium weight yarn, you can use size 15s or 17s and either knit it in stockinette or the eyelet pattern mandanak posted above. I think it's a little more complicated but if you twisted every other stitch in stockinette, it might come out similar. Cast on about 12 sts with large needles and try out both ideas and see what you think. That will also give you an idea how many sts to cast on for the width of the finished scarf.

I'd go with even bigger needles if you can. I have a pair of 50s that could do that scarf. BUT the bigger the needle, the more yarn you'll need. That looks like at least 4 strands held together, IMHO>
