 ...Using this pattern  http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a232/Gruzzee_m/scarf-1.png

I'm trying to knit a scarf that has this pattern on both sides, is there any way to do that? If there isn't, any suggestions about how to knit it and then cover the wrong side? I've done color work before but nothing this complex.

Do the pattern twice with a "spacer" or non-pattern stitch on both extreme edges. Fold the finished scarf correct sides together and use one of the many seaming methods to stitch the free edges together through those "spacer" stitches. Turn it right side out and flatten it Cheesy

You could also do this in the round, but I personally haven't figured out that "jogless stripes" thing yet, so I'm not entirely sure how that would work out for a more complex pattern.

You can learn double knitting from a video.  Both sides of the scarf with have the same design, but in different colors.

if you want to do it in the round like Alexus suggested, have the start of the round be at the edge where there's 2 yellow stitches (1 on each side of the chart). Then you won't notice a jog/jump/whatever at the start of the round, because the 1st and last stitch of the round will be the same color.
