I have a deep love for entrelac and want lots of knitters who feel daunted by it to give it a try. This pattern was originally designed as a first project for someone unfamiliar with entrelac. Although it looks complex, it only requires basic knitting skills to accomplish. This pattern will take you through all the aspects of entrelac from the beginning triangles to right and left leaning rectangles as well as beginning and ending side triangles.
You could knit it in a solid color, but for maximum fun, use a self-striping yarn with long color runs. Three skeins is sufficient for a standard to longish length scarf.
The pattern has line-by-line instructions along with two schematics for added clarity.
16 sts and 20 rows = 4"
After 20 years of working in music and worship arts, I have had the joy of spending the last six years teaching and encouraging knitters, as well as designing knitwear.
I am hopelessly addicted to making beautiful, colorful things.
