I would LOVE to make a scarf like this one, in fact it's my motivation to try to learn to knit again (I'm usually a crocheter) Only problem is I can't find a similar pattern anywhere! Any ideas?  Thank you!

It looks like a simple triangle shawl, wrapped around the neck instead of around the shoulders.  There are a lot of free patterns for simple triangle shawls, but if you wanted to purchase one for a bit of money, this one is pretty simple...I think the main thing is to use a similar yarn...maybe a nice Noro silk?

any idea of what yarn was used?

to me it looks like a very long scarf was knit, but the cast on was the length of the scarf

I'd love to make a hat just like this- I just need a pattern!

Quick and dirty from zooming in on the photo:

C6F: slip 3 sts to cable needle, hold in front, knit 3, knit 3 from cn
C6B: slip 3 sts to cable needle, hold in back, knit 3, knit 3 from cn

Cast on 32 sts (this suggests a super bulky yarn and very big needles)
Rnd 1-7: k1, p1
Rnd 8: increase 10 stitches evenly spaced (42 sts) - The hat in the photo increases in the purl columns
Rnd 9-19: knit
Rnd 20: C6F
Rnd 21-31: knit
Rnd 32: k3, *C6B, repeat from * the last cable will use the first three stitches that were just knit at the start of the round
Rnd 33-43: knit

At this point I can't see the crown of the hat. So I suggest finding a hat with a similar gauge and using the decreases from that. The decreases are pretty abrupt so maybe try:

Rnd 44: k2tog, k2, ssk
Rnd 45-47: knit
Rnd 48: k2tog, ssk
Rnd: 49-50: knit
Rnd 51: k2tog
Fasten off remaining 7 sts

Round 8 note: You need a multiple of 6 stitches for the cable pattern so you can either increase to 36 or 42 on this round. There are three clearly visible increases in the photo which is a bit confusing because using the scheme we see there should be 8 increases (to 40 sts) which does not make a multiple of six.

If you increase to 36 stitches you will have 6 cable crossings in a round, 42 will give you 7. The photo suggests there are 6 since we see 3, but also that the increases were to 42. There may be one knit stitch between each cable crossing, allowing for 6 crossings in a round of 42 stitches, in that case round 20 would be "C6F, k1" and round 32 would be "k3, *C6B, k1 repeat from *" and will use only 2 of the initial knits.

That's my best guess at least with the photo and what little time I have before I take off on vacation. Smiley

It looks like a stockinette crescent shawl with several rows of garter stitch at the bottom edge and perhaps three rows of spaced and staggered eyelets above that. You definitely want something with a pronounced curve where the bottom edge is a lot longer than the top, that's how you get the ringlet sort of curls on the dangling ends.

Thank you all for your suggestions for the scarf, the lady that made it has got back to me, but she didn't use a pattern, she made it up as she went along, she said "The scarf is improvised: I worked short rows back and forth to create a crescent shape and then added a ruffle at the outside edge with yarn-overs. It is made from recycled silk yarn and feels amazing."  I think I might have to abandon this idea for a while till my knitting improves!  But thank you all for your help Smiley xx
