Can you please send to me in PDF form as it's not downloading yesterday. The other seller that I also bought from yesterday did that and so I was able to access it that way.

Just finished your scarf pattern and love it! I have been intrigued with the picture for quite some time but felt it was way out of my skill set. I am hooked for sure and wanting the hat now.

If you're still having problems, contact Craftsy's customer service and they usually help out very quickly! I know that when they feature my pattern on social media I get thousands of people trying to download it at the same time and that may cause a bit of a back-up. Some people have had better success trying to download it a day or so later when the traffic dies down. I hope this helps you!

Where do you suggest I find the type of wool recommended for this scarf?

Hi there! I see that your profile says that you are in Edmonton, AB. I quick search said that River City Yarns in Edmonton carries the Noro brand (http://www.rivercityyarns.com/). Or you could order it online. I'm not that familiar with Canadian online sellers so you may be able to find that easier than me! I hope this helps!

Hi Freckles& Purls, i confess i'm not he strongest knitter but i do so love a challenge and this one looked beautiful. I have two problems so far. I've CO 24 sts, done the base triangle but still have plenty of stitches left. Is that right? I moved on to the second part and when trying to do the left side triangle you have KFB (bar st). Do i only do 1 KFB or the whole row?! Do you have maybe a tutorial video for this?

Hi Yasmine!

There is a very good video tutorial on this exact pattern filmed by Staci Perry of verypink.com. The tutorial can be found here - http://verypink.com/2011/12/22/learn-to-knit-entrelac/

One thing to note - If I'm remembering correctly, Staci does change the decreases at the end of the WS rows in the Right Side Triangles on Tier 1. The instructions say to end with a k2tog and I think she does a p2tog in the video. If you want the edges of your scarf to match, stick with the k2togs there.

I hope this helps! Her tutorial is very in depth! Once you get the hang of it, you'll be flying! :)

Hi, I would love to make your Entrelac Scarf this Winter, which is not far off now here in South Australia. How many balls of wool would I need, and how many of each colour please? Thanks, Sue

Hi Sue!

This pattern calls for 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden in colorway number 87 (or approx 440 yards of any aran weight yarn). Noro's variegated yarns work best with this pattern because the colors change on their own! :) Hope this helps!

Do you think if I repeated this pattern and sewed it together I can make a blanket--it is why I first clicked on it--hoping it was a blanket-not a baby blanket by the way

Instead of making a ton of scarves and sewing them together, you can easily change the number of stitches cast on and make it as wide as you need it. Just make sure that the number of stitches you cast on is divisible by 8. The directions won't be different (the only difference will be the number of squares/triangles you will have in each tier).

Are you still having problems with printing? Are you seeing both pages of the pattern when you download it? If so, it may be something in your printer settings telling your printer to just print the first page. Changing that setting should fix the problem.

can you please specify what you would consider Aran Weight yarn?

FrecklesnPurls on craftsy.com
FrecklesnPurls  July 16, 2013 4:48 PM
Flag as inappropriate

Aran weight yarn falls between Worsted and Bulky. It is a little bit thicker than Worsted weight yarn but is still considered a "medium" weight yarn. A helpful chart for yarn weights can be found here - http://www.ravelry.com/help/yarn/weights

Hope this helps! Sorry for the late reply.

FrecklesnPurls  July 16, 2013 6:30 PM

Also, you can use ANY weight yarn for this pattern! Just use the best needle size for your yarn. Thinner yarns will produce a skinnier scarf and bulkier yarns will result in a large one! :)

I too love this pattern, just never knew what it was called. found a store flyer many years ago that just called it a basket weave. Once you have the basics down, its quite simple to adapt to what ever you want to make. You can even make the weaves a different size, just make sure to cast on multiples of that number.

If the first row is only one stitch then that's the only stitch you'll purl on the second row! :) Yes, a row can consist of only one stitch!

This pattern is amazing and surprisingly easy to follow. I'd never done entrelac and was very excited to try it. My scarf turned out great and I even gave it to a student of mine that I just recently addicted to knitting. She's definitely a novice and has had little problem following it. You won't regret trying this phenomenal pattern!

I am just now seeing this comment! Apologies for the tardy reply! I do know that entrelac can certainly be done in crochet! If you just google "crochet entrelac" you will see a ton of resources that may help you create a crocheted version of this scarf (I think there are a lot of YouTube videos on it out there). I hope this helps! And again, sorry for the delay in reply! Craftsy doesn't notify me when a new comment is posted so I need to try and remember to check for them more often!!! :)

Fell in love with entrelac. Not really difficult but I do need to pay attention. I, too, have knitted a long time and do well with written patterns. Not so well with charts. Maybe that will be my next challange..

I agree that IF you can follow directions, you should be able to knit this. I can follow directions if written, but have a great deal of difficulty with charts. My eyesight just isn't good enough to follow them--I can't even make out what some of the symbols are, much less knit them! I wish people who write patterns would provide written instructions instead of (or in addition to) charts! I just purchased a pattern (which I very rarely do) only to find it has only a chart and NO written instructions. Which means I won't be able to knit it! Very upsetting!!

I always not only enlarge, but mark off every 5 or 10 rows and columns (depending on complexity of pattern) with a heavy line to make it easier to follow. I find that I switch between charts and written, using whichever seems easier for that pattern. Sometimes I even color in the charts so that, say, green means k2tog and yellow p2tog, marking the key as well, of course.

Thank you so much for this pattern. I have just finished my scarf and it is beautiful. I watched Staci's videos and she was a great help (as always). I think this pattern is quite suitable for a beginning knitter. The technique looks much harder than it is when knitting.
