Goodbye Scarf - Knit Version
More than just a basic entrelac scarf, this design uses broken ribbing to accentuate the directionality of the entrelac shapes, and creates a fabric that looks great on both sides. The pattern includes the option for a simple but attractive lace motif in the central diamond, which can be omitted for a gender-neutral result. Worked from end to end, this is a great statement piece for anyone you love to wrap in knitted warmth.
The color-shifting yarn adds another layer of interest to the piece, but the scarf would be just as dramatic in a semi-solid yarn, or with two alternating solid colors. Almost any worsted weight yarn could be substituted in this pattern.
Knitter should be proficienct with knit, purl, yarn over, decreasing and pattern reading. Instructions include backwards loop cast on, purling into the front and back of a stitch, and picking up stitches. Previous experience knitting entrelac would be helpful, although not necessary. Pattern is written in a step by step manner.
