Viking Knits Pattern
The scarf is set up on the row as follows:

Seed 5 st / Ropey Cable 4 st (crossed to the Left every 4th row) / Seed 5 st / The Viking Cable 24 st / Seed 5 st / Ropey Cable 4 st (crossed to the Right every 4th row / Seed 5 st.

I snagged this Viking Cable from Elsebeth Lavold's first book, called:
Viking Cables for Knitting, and it is ON SALE at Amazon.com right now.
This book was her very first book, and I think it is still her best!
As I told Mason in a PM, you will learn many of her unusual techniques, specifically, how to open and close a cable within the field of the knitting using the "lifted increases" method. Very well explained in the book I might add. She also gives a lot of history regarding the Viking Knits Project, analyzing Viking Patterns, etc.

There are some interesting guy knits in it as well. "HARALD" on pg 74 is a man's pullover, watch cap, socks and mittens! A man's vest on page 96, with a matching pullover for a little boy!

There is an intersting Viking Knits blanket/afghan and pillow on pg 104.

I couldn't sell the pattern for this scarf, because the most distinctive part of it was snagged from Elsebeth's book. I am sure you understand!

This Viking Cable was given as a part of the pullover called "RAGNA" and the chart is on page 54.

Don't be frightened by Viking Knits. Elsebeth makes it very easy to do, and to learn! I taught myself by just reading the book!

Knit on, good people!

i was beginning to think i missed something.
gorgeous as always! i may have to pick that one up (and add a little something extra for the free shipping of course). i've found a lys that carries EL, but there's nothing like knitting books on sale, is there?
