I've seen patterns just like that, but can't find one now. I know the Jaywalker socks pattern stitch is like that, and the chevron lace beret; search for those and it will give you the basic st pattern which is - dec, Kx, YO, K1, YO, Kx, dec, repeat. Or something similar.
ETA: I finally found a scarf pattern - http://the-doily-underground.blogspo...carf-with.html
and a variation in a blanket - http://www.fortheloveofyarn.com/Issu...07_cielo.shtml
