Modify the pattern as you see fit. It is rather easy if somewhat time consuming.
Things to know:
1) Use 2 colours. If you want a tutorial on knitting in two colours, let me know. It is quite easy once you start.
2) 7 Stitches used: Knit (K), Purl (P), Knit 2 together (K2tog), Yarn Over (YO), Make 1 stitch to the Left (M1L), Make 1 stitch to the Right (M1R), Slip Slip Knit (SSK).
3) The pattern can be converted to straight needles. If you do, make sure to purl every other row.
