Looks like super bulky on #17 (12.5mm) needles, 4 stitches in garter stitch at each side, and at least 15 stitches in the braid in the center.

To start out I'd try this:

cast on 23 stitches (a multiple of 3 plus Cool

Row 1: knit
Row 2 and all even rows: k4, p15, k4
Row 3: knit
Row 5: k4, c5f, k9
Row 7: knit
Row 9: knit
Row 11: knit
Row 13: knit
Row 15: k9, c5b, k4
Row 17: knit
Row 19: knit
Row 20: k4, p15, k4

c5f: slip 5 stitches to cable needle and hold in front, knit 5, knit 5 from cable needle
c5b: slip 5 stitches to cable needle and hold in back, knit 5, knit 5 from cable needle

I said "to start out" because depending on the look you might want to make the cable wider (total cable stitches must be a multiple of three, cable crossings use 2/3rds of the stitches) or work more or less plain rows between the crossing rows.

OK so I'm absolutely in LOVE with this scarf:

http://www.barneys.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-BNY-Site/default/Link-Product?pid=500672872

but there is no way I am paying $200 for it!  I want to make it but I have no idea how -- I'm a knitting newbie (I prefer crocheting but this looks like a knitting job)... It says it is a ladder knit--what is that?? It is horizontally striped on one side and vertically striped on the other-- how do I do that?  And if anyone knows how to knit that pattern on the ends as well, that would be AMAZING.

Thanks in advance!!!

I am a crocheter too, but i think i know how they did the vertical/horizontal switch. the scarf looks like it is made double the width you want to end up with and then folded over. so you could knit the first half of the stitches of each row vertical and then the last half horizontal. does that make sense? lol
here is a link to a ladder stitch:

I think Calorimetry (I'll be right back with a link & correct spelling Smiley ) from Knitty or the Panta headband (try a yahoo/google search for this one, I remember there was a bunch of different versions out there) would be a good starting point, then add a crocheted/knit/sewn/felted/etc flower

I'm looking for a pattern for a turban like this:

Don't think it should be too hard, but I don't know where I would start and end Tongue

Just letting you guys and gals know on here that I finally had some help finding the pattern of the bean sprout pattern. A friend on a group in yahoo called Knitlist helped me out on finding it.

HI folks,
I saw on a number of old threads that a few knitters/crafters had completed one of the above. Anyone any idea where i might be able to get a pattern?
have a husband who has just started a degree in nursing and thought it'd be a cool valentines gift.
Cheers
Clare
