Pattern Description:

Entrelac is a technique used to create a textured diamond pattern. The resulting fabric looks like woven knitted strips but is actually knitted in one piece. The technique looks more difficult than it is! This scarf is the perfect introduction to entrelac and is great for beginners.

WARNING: People will "ooh!" and "aah!" over this scarf when you wear it. They will also think you are a knitting genius when you tell them you made it yourself. The actual simplicity of the pattern will be our little secret. ;-)

18 stitches and 24 rows/4 inches in stockinette stitch.

Gauge is not crucial since this is not a fitted garment but changes in gauge can affect both the size of the scarf and the amount of yarn required to complete it.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 61 inches x 6.5 inches, unblocked (size is dependent upon gauge and how severely you block it, if you decide to do so)


  • Noro Silk Garden, color 87 (4 skeins) or approx 440 yds of any aran weight yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • US size 8 (5 mm) needles

I remember beginning my crafting addiction as a child with cross-stitching. This was obviously my "gateway craft" because it led to an unnatural obsession with anything and everything thread-, fabric-, and yarn-related.
