The yarn shop that has become a home away from home recently had a class on entrelac knitting with this scarf as the project. I won't try to describe this to non-knitters as it would sound way too confusing. If you do knit and haven't tried this pattern, it really was fun and not as complicated as I thought it would be. Normally knitting means going back and forth on your needles, but with entrelac, you work on angles to the left or right. KnittyOtter describes and illustrates her version of this scarf here. My scarf was done on 8 stitches rather than 6, but everything else is the same. The yarn I used is Tonalita by Trendsetter Yarns. I love how the colors in the yarn changed and made each section seem like it was a deliberate color change. Some of the others who took this class used a more subtle color and theirs are also beautiful. I wasn't feeling subtle.
This is the same yarn in a different color wave. Because my knitting is straight back and forth, the colors are striping. The pattern stitch is a six row repeat that creates the diagonal ridge with opens spaces that will show up much better after the scarf is finished and blocked (steamed). I could steam the entrelac scarf and it would be flatter and longer, but most of us in class like the puffiness of the unblocked version.
