Attempting to Cable the Double Infinity Symbol

Have you seen the new hit TV show Revenge on ABC? (Follow the link for a synopsis of the show.) If so, you know about the double infinity symbol. And if you don't here's a picture:

This box is totally buy-able. Click here to get info on how to do so.
As a knitter, this is a challenge and a delight! Who wouldn't want this running around the band of a hat or up a scarf or --better yet-- in a few squares on an afghan? I TOTALLY WANT THIS CABLE! This presents a problem, though, because there is no cable for it. Oh, crappers, what do I do now?

I ask Eunny Jang. She blogged about recreating simple cables here. I followed instructions as best I could by opening image in Adobe Fireworks and flipping, cropping, and coloring it.

The infinity image with individually colored cables.
I then held a piece of graph paper up to my laptop screen and traced the image as is.


I then attempted to translate this tracing into an actual graph.
And that's as far as I have gotten. Somehow from that graph I've got to make a knittable cable chart. This is not going to be easy.
