Try Out This Gorgeous Knitted Entrelac Scarf
If you haven’t tried Entrelac before, this lovely knitted entrelac scarf is a great introduction to this knitting technique.
Entrelac is a knitting technique used to create a textured diamond pattern. It results in a knitted fabric that looks a bit like basket-woven strips.
The resulting fabric comprises of interconnecting squares in two different orientations, which looks like diamonds.
Uniquely, in entrelac, a “row” of knitting is in fact many smaller “rows”.
The good news is that it looks a lot more difficult to knit entrelac then it actually is.
This knitting technique only requires the knit and purl stitches and the ability to “k2tog” and “p2tog” (knit or purl two stitches together) and to pick up stitches.
You can do entrelac entirely in garter stitch although stockinette is more common.
To knit this gorgeous entrelac scarf, you are going to need:
- US Size 8 (5 mm) knitting needles
- 4 skeins (or approx. 440 yards) of any aran weight yarn
Gauge: 18 stitches and 24 rows/4 inches in stockinette stitch.
Size: 61 inches x 6.5 inches, unblocked (size is dependent upon gauge and how severely you block it, if you decide to do so)
The designer behind this delightful Entrelac scarf is Allison LoCicero from Freckles & Purls.
She has rated this pattern at a beginner level.
