I like this pattern, but not the cables used. I would have to modify it so much that it would not be worth it for me to buy it. Does anyone know of a slightly similar pattern that I can use to design my own?

This looks fairly easy to duplicate on your own without a pattern.  It's basically an 8 inch wide, 58 inch long scarf with a couple of buttons on it. There is a garter stitch border on one long side and the cable pattern on the other long side. Change the cable pattern to whatever pattern/motif that you desire.

Thanks so much for this advice. I was thinking that this might be the case, but I was confused by the measurements that were given in the description. The measurements were:
Size
Length (along short edge): 51"
Length (along ribbed edge): 58" 
Width: 8

Why is one length 51" and the other 58"?
